New Brunswick Social Pediatrics (NBSP) was developed to improve the quality of life, health and long-term outcomes of children and their families in our province by conducting research on "what works" to help our kids. NBSP is seeking to optimize access and service delivery to children who face difficult living circumstances, toxic stress and trauma. These conditions impact health and development as well as a child's integration into their school and community. Community Social Pediatrics is a multi-pronged, inter-professional approach that addresses the needs of children and their families affected by the social determinants of health. This model is based on our commitment to the United Nations (UN) Convention of Child Rights and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The Parent-Child Assistance Program (PCAP) is a paraprofessional intervention for high-risk women and their families. The Case Manager will be responsible for providing direct outreach, home visitation case management, and advocacy services to women who have experienced alcohol- or substance-use disorder during pregnancy, and to their children, partners, and extended families when needed.
The ideal candidate will enthusiastically support the vision and mission of PCAP and possess the personal qualities of integrity and credibility.
