Children’s Home Looks To Fill 30 New Jobs

There are 30 new jobs to fill in Watertown.

They’re at the Children’s Home of Jefferson County.

The new employees will work with non-violent 16 and 17 year olds who won’t be prosecuted as adults.

That’s the result of New York’s new ‘Raise the Age’ law.

The children’s home has contracts with a number of counties to provide housing and programming for the teens.

“We have direct care people that we want to hire. We also want to hire supervisors all the way up to a case planner, case manager and program manager, so a lot of different options,” said Matthew Richmond of the children’s home.

Another job fair will happen Monday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the State Street campus.
