Our Family Services Jobs: Overview
Our Family Services provides shelter and support to homeless children, youth and families. We promote peace and understanding by helping people talk to each other. We help some of Tucson’s highest-risk children learn to read. We help troubled families cope with addiction and find healing. We help people learn to be better parents, improve their lives and their relationships, and build stronger families. We help older and disabled people live safely and with dignity in their own homes.
We have two program areas:
Our continuum of care helps homeless children, youth and families into safe, stable housing and on to independent lives through outreach, shelter and support, transitional housing and case management.
We help build a better community through counseling, education, services for elders, information and referral, and our new Center for Community Dialogue.
Our Family is a $5.1 million organization with nearly 100 employees and an active corps of volunteers. It is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Services for Families and Children Inc. and licensed as a behavioral healthcare institution by the Arizona Department of Health Services.
As a merged agency, Our Family has been formed of many once-independent parts -- OUR TOWN and Family Counseling Agency in 2005, Information & Referral Services in 2008, and New Beginnings for Women & Children in July 2012.
