About Four Oaks
At Four Oaks, we believe that every child needs the opportunity to succeed. It's more than our mission – it's the passion that permeates everything we do. Four Oaks has grown to become one of the state's largest agencies devoted to child welfare, juvenile justice and behavioral health. We recognize that children come to us from a variety of circumstances, which makes it important for us to reach kids and families where they are right now. For that reason, we provide prevention, intervention and treatment programs and services.
Although we work with more than 15,000 kids and families in all 99 counties each year, each child is unique and treated as a single, special someone who needs some kind of support. Children may come to us with psychiatric and emotional problems; they stay with us until they feel secure. Some have been in trouble with the law, got into drugs or ran away from home; that's when we work with them to teach them a better way to live. Others have challenges in the classroom; we teach them in a way that works for them. And when kids need a safe, secure home, we find foster care or a forever family.
Four Oaks offers a comprehensive benefit package, casual work environment, and opportunities for growth & advancement!
