A Career You Can Be Proud Of

Our staff members have a library of personal stories featuring those “magical moments” with clients. Those moments remind us that the love and care we offer truly make a difference in the lives of our clients. While each of our programs serves a slightly different purpose, the support and guidance remain the same throughout all of them. At Tanager, we also take care of our employees. Not only do we offer sign-on bonuses and competitive benefits that employees can actually use, but we also provide (and encourage) opportunities for a healthy work-life balance through flexibility and PTO. It is important to us that we maintain an open and honest line of communication with employees, and the same goes for our recruitment efforts. This means we don’t use misleading salary ranges to gather recruits. We remain transparent and operate as a team, supporting and uplifting one another for the best success. Because we value our people, we hire from within as often as possible. This allows our staff to explore their strengths, build on their skills, and explore their career path while continuing to make a difference with Tanager. Many different roles are required to keep Tanager operating smoothly. This includes:
  • Youth Service Workers
  • Behavioral Health Intervention Specialists
  • Facilities Maintenance
  • Therapists
  • Social Workers
  • Nurses
  • Cooks
  • Camp Counselors
  • Office Administrators
  • Crisis Intervention Specialists
  • Interns
  • And more!
