The Position

Social Workers are licensed professionals who provide case management services to children, families, vulnerable adults with intellectual, developmental, physical disabilities, serious mental illness, and older adults (collectively referred to as "vulnerable adults") and other individuals within local communities and institutions.

Incumbents perform in a trainee capacity and acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities required in this occupation. Case management is defined as the process by which an individual's needs are identified and the social, habilitative, and medical services designed to meet those needs are located, coordinated, and monitored. Positions in this series may specialize in one service area or may work in several areas as a generalist, depending upon the needs of the community and the mission of the agency to which assigned. Under close supervision, incumbents at this level function in a trainee capacity, learning to determine the social service needs of clients, develop appropriate solutions and case plans, and provide ongoing case management services. This is the entry-level to the Social Worker series. Progression may occur to the journey level upon satisfactory completion of the required training period, and with the recommendation of the appointing authority.

The Division of Welfare and Supportive Services (DWSS) employs licensed social workers who have a passion for helping Nevadans reach their highest level of self-reliance. DWSS social workers provide personalized case management to TANF recipients, assisting to overcome significant barriers including domestic violence, mental health, substance abuse, physical disability, learning disability, housing and homelessness, child behavioral issues, CPS involvement, legal issues, parenting skills, and pregnant and parenting teens. DWSS social workers are responsible for conducting psycho-social assessments, developing personal responsibility plans, conducting home visits, transporting clients to appointments, case management and monitoring client progress, client advocacy, crisis intervention, developing knowledge of community resources, and establishing relationships with community partners.
