Have you successfully supported your child through an IEP,
probation, mental health, or social services? Are you comfortable
sharing your journey with others? As a Parent Partner for
Wraparound in Bakersfield, California, you will use your empathy,
respect, and listening skills to help parents become the best they
can be. While you spend time providing hands-on peer support and
helping families navigate community systems and resources, you will
remember the impact you have on the entire family when the parents
feel supported and loved. You will contribute to the growth of
every member of the family and support them as they thrive in their
independent, healthy lives.

needed to be independent, confident parents. This is a role where
no one day is alike as no two parent's needs are alike. Some days
you may be helping with budgeting or establishing house rules,
while other days you may be providing support during court
proceedings, IEPs or family meetings. Your flexible schedule allows
you to meet parents when they most need you, which may mean
starting your day before their working hours and ending early or
starting your day later and meeting them during dinnertime. At
times when you have resistant parents, you'll use your
relationship, shared life experience, and interpersonal skills to
gain their engagement and commitment.
YOUR QUALIFICATIONSIf you've had at least four years of real-life
