Family Support Navigator

The Family Support Navigator shall be assigned to work in the Family Support Navigator grant-funded program.  The Family Support Navigator is a part-time position, 17 hours a week maximum, and is directly responsible for meeting with individuals and families in their homes or places of their choice in the community.  Additionally, the Navigators will also have a presence in various community settings during the week to be a resource for the community.  The expected outcome will be for Family Support Navigators to provide information about resources to help individuals and families connect with substance use treatment facilities, in-patient settings, community-based organizations, self-help and support groups, and managed care organizations so that the appropriate level and culture of care is provided.

The Family Support Navigator may receive calls directly from families and individuals during work hours, or may be assigned to follow-up from calls that come into the Family Support Navigator message line; such calls will be dispatched by the Resource Manager and assigned to the Family Navigators based on geography.  The Resource Manager will act as task supervisor to the Family Navigators.Read More



“CoveCare provides a tremendous amount of mental health services for the people who live in and around Putnam County,” said Byrne. “I am proud to announce that, this past legislative session, we were able to identify and secure funding to assist CoveCare in moving forward with several capital improvements needed in their Carmel facility. I am eager to see them complete their plans to make improvements that will enhance soundproofing for client privacy, and update both the facility’s flooring and bathrooms. Mental health care is health care, and it is critical we provide workers and patients with safe and modern working conditions.”
