Awixa was founded in 2001 to provide children & youth with a safe, nurturing and home-like environment where they will be empowered to change the world with their own two hands.

The primary goal at Awixa is to help our youth reunite with their families, or when there are no families to reunite, to empower our youth to be fully self-sufficient.

We are looking for a concerned, motivated, and capable individual dedicated to continuing our commitment to providing a supportive, structured environment for our residents. The Direct Care Worker will provide guidance, teach life skills and empower our youth to lead productive lives.

The Case Aide will report directly to the Case Manager. The Case Aide will be responsible for meeting with residents, coordinating services, and documenting in Connections.
