In partnership with the NYC Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), Sheltering Arms has launched a new program that will serve as an Annex for the Nicholas Scoppetta Children’s Center pre-placement program for children entering the foster care system. This new Bronx-based short-term, residential program serving young children between the ages of 0 to 12 years old, will be called the Children’s Center Annex. The Children’s Center Annex provides a home-like, co-ed, developmentally appropriate setting for younger children, including sibling groups. The Annex is designed to be warm, colorful, and child-friendly, and staff will be trained in trauma informed practices allowing them to provide a nurturing environment for children entering foster care.
Sheltering Arms has several openings for Full Time Child Care Workers (2) Shifts Available: 3pm-11pm and Over Nights 11pm-7am to supervise and provide care, direction and guidance to infants, toddlers and children up to age 12, assist with the record keeping and perform duties necessary for the overall care and well-being of the children in the program.
