New Year, New Job? Maybe you Belong Here.


The last two years have transformed the way we all think about work.  Millions of employees are now (and still) working from home, while others may have been displaced completely.  Reading all the articles about the “The Great Resignation” can surely put us in a funk!  According to the Department of Labor, a record 4.5 million American workers quit their jobs in November 2021.  

What’s on the other side of this “Great Resignation?”  One answer: Jobs! 

Consider Crossnore

It’s certainly no secret that so many companies are hiring, including Crossnore. Maybe it’s a great time to think about your work-life balance or how fulfilled you feel with your current career.  Is it time to update your resume?  When was the last time you felt passionate about your life’s work?

Positions Available

Two of our largest teams are Residential and Clinical Services. Did you know that we have more than 70 Cottage Parents that work at Crossnore?  Cottage Parents (CP’s for short) work 7 days/nights on and 7 off, managing cottages on our campuses that serve up to 9 children. Their day-to-day roles include meal prep, transportation to school or appointments, managing chore and homework time, and planning special activities for weekends and summer fun. Each Tuesday, CP’s arrive all packed and ready to go for a great week “on” with children in Crossnore’s care.

Another part of care for Residential children includes support from our great group of Case Managers and Therapists. Our licensed therapists also help children in families throughout our community through outpatient appointments, school-based services, and the Day Treatment Program. Associate level Therapists are encouraged to join our team as they work to achieve full licensure. Many have found the clinical supervision and ongoing professional development provided by our agency is a great place to start and continue a meaningful career.

We have multiple openings, and job listings are updated on our website at least weekly. If you feel drawn to helping others and being a dependable role model for children and families, please visit the Careers page on our website today. We’d love to talk to you more about a possible future place in our Crossnore family.
