Caterpillars Childcare Supervisor
$18.00 – $23.00 per hour
A crucial and integral component of YWCA Helena’s work includes the Caterpillars Center. Caterpillars was established to offer respite childcare for women working on their recovery and self-sufficiency. It became evident that about 70% of the women YWCA served either had children who were in their custody or with whom they wished to reunite. Caterpillars now serves as the parenting support for women in recovery, provides supervised parenting time for non-custodial parents, facilitates safe exchanges, and provides parenting coaching and classes as well as children’s mental health services. The person who fills this role will launch a trauma-informed and responsive childcare center to support children who have experienced trauma, exhibit challenging behaviors, and may be unable to participate in typical community-based childcare.
