Fair Housing Testers Needed

The Fair Housing Program at the Disability Law Center (DLC) continues to address housing discrimination throughout the state of Utah!  In the past 6 months, the DLC Fair Housing team has served 1200 individuals through our outreach efforts and client services.

We have many properties that need fair housing testing as part of ongoing investigations, which means we are still in need of testers!

Testers are the people who visit or call landlords to inquire about apartments, then submit written reports about their experiences back to the DLC.  Testers receive a stipend for each completed test after attending a training session. 

What we’re looking for is a diverse group of people to use as testers.  They don’t have to belong to a particular protected class-race, disability, color, religion, etc.-to participate.

If you know of anyone who might be interested, they can fill out an application online by following this link to our website:  http://disabilitylawcenter.org/job-posting-fair-housing-testers/

Contact Vard McGuire at vmcguire@disabilitylawcenter.org or at 801-363-1347×3192 if you would like additional information about our Fair Housing Program or to answer questions you might have.

Social Worker

Utah State Hospital

We have posted a position for a Social Worker on our unit. We would really like to have a number of applicants to choose from. The advantage of applying here is that we provide the hours and patients to ensure that our employees can get the “L” at the two year mark without much difficulty. Perhaps you would let your graduating students know. We will be interviewing students that have not graduated but will this spring.

On this unit, we have developed a ever-increasing toolbox of evidence-based therapies, including CBT, CBT-p, DBT, CT-R, metacognitive therapies, and psychoeducation, and have received trainings directly from EBP organizations such as The Beck Institute, CBSST, and The Linehan Institute. We are on the cutting edge of treatment for patients with Severe Mental Illness and have started to see our employees be chosen for leadership positions in the hospital. We have been identified by medical students that have worked on teams throughout the country as the most effective team they have worked with. We think this is a good place to start a career for any new graduate.

Will you please let those who are in their last semester of the MSW program (especially those in the Mental Health domain; Substance Abuse and Forensics domains would also be strong candidates) that they are welcome to apply for this position as soon as they’ve taken the CSW licensing test?  They can apply by going to http://statejobs.utah.gov/jobseeker/
