Position Description

Aging and Disability Services Division (ADSD) is recruiting for multiple Social Worker 2 positions within Community Based Care (CBC) and Adult Protective Services (APS) located in Las Vegas, Nevada. This recruitment may be used to fill current and future vacancies as they occur. 

Social Workers are licensed professionals who provide case management services to children, families, the elderly, and other individuals within local communities and institutions. The social workers within our agency may support Nevada’s frail older adults and people with physical disabilities to remain independent in the community and prevent long term care placements. Additionally be responsible for assisting vulnerable adults, age 18 to 59, in addition to persons 60 years and older who are abused, neglected, exploited, isolated, or abandoned by investigating, providing, or arranging for services to alleviate and prevent further maltreatment while safeguarding their civil liberties.

ADSD provides an atmosphere of innovative thinking, teamwork, friendly co-workers, and provides a positive working environment.  The mission of ADSD is to provide leadership and advocacy in the planning, development, and delivery of a high quality, comprehensive support service system across the lifespan to allow all of Nevada’s elders, children, and adults with disabilities or special health care needs, to live independent, meaningful, and dignified lives to the greatest extent possible.
