“David” an 8 year old boy with classic Autism, came to us after being removed from his home by DCF. He was non-verbal, using grunting sounds and pointing or acting out to communicate his thoughts and feelings. He had an intense fear of going outside and making transitions to new places was overwhelming for him. His academic skills were extremely low and he was not getting any real educational services due to the upheaval in his life. HCRS staff immediately began to identify the services he would need to progress and grow. A shared living provider was found who has given him a wonderful family environment to live and grow in. David now goes to school for the whole day. He is using his words more than ever and instead of pulling on someone or grunting or pointing, he is prompted to use requests like “ Can I use the computer, please,” without being told.
The vision of HCRS is to be the agency of choice, providing excellence in integrated human services.
The mission of HCRS is to provide exemplary service by a team passionate about improving the quality of life in our communities.
Being the “agency of choice” is important to us at HCRS. We understand that our staff have employment choices and can decide to leave HCRS and take their dedication, knowledge, and skills to another employer. In the same way, job candidates are comparing different employers. We have worked to make HCRS an employer of choice by creating a workplace that is positive, supportive, and challenging to retain current staff and attract the best new staff. We are an agency that offers competitive salaries, one of the best benefit packages in Vermont, and professional development opportunities to make your time here a career, not just a job. We understand that our employees need work-life balance and our benefits package reflects that. We offer a generous paid time off policy as well as medical, dental, vision, and retirement plans that take care of the whole family.
In return we ask our staff to work hard and be committed to providing the highest quality services to our clients and their families. And, that is also why our goal of being the “agency of choice” is so important. We know clients and their families can choose to go elsewhere, but because of our excellent staff and the excellent services they provide, clients and families choose HCRS.
HCRS offers employment on both a regular and contract basis.
