11 Foster Care Workers Wanted


The county’s Department of Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services (ADMHS) is seeking 11 new full-time licensed clinicians or interns to work with foster kids. Five of the positions will be located in Santa Maria and three each in Lompoc and Santa Barbara. The extra jobs come from a recently decided Los Angeles lawsuit that orders California counties to better provide mental-health care to foster kids. Sixty-five of the county’s 375 foster kids are ADMHS clients; 124 more will become clients this year.
