The Cattaraugus County Department of Social Services will join districts across New York State in recognizing the month of May as Foster Care Month.
Our youth are a precious resource and symbol of hope for the future and deserve to grow up in a safe, healthy and stable home environment. Statewide, there are over 19,000 children who seek placement in a permanent, nurturing, adoptive home. In Cattaraugus County, 93 children are currently in foster care.
The Cattaraugus County Sheriff's Office is seeking candidates for the position of Registered Professional Nurse to be filled on a part time basis.
The incumbent provides nursing care to mentally ill and emotionally disturbed inmates; leads prescribed individual or group therapy sessions as part of specific therapeutic procedures; dispenses prescribed medications and generally observes inmates to detect abnormal behavior patterns.
The successful applicant must possess a license and current certification to practice as a registered professional nurse in New York State.
The Cattaraugus County Department of Social Services is pleased to report twenty-eight people, who were receiving public assistance benefits, are now employed thanks to the efforts of department staff.
Social Services staff report that in April 2015, 28 county residents received training, work experience and a chance to get high school equivalency diplomas when necessary. These Social Services clients were assisted by department staff in order to help them enter the workforce to reduce or eliminate their need for public assistance.
Day after day correctional officers throughout Cattaraugus County enter places where most citizens never want to go –county jail. Behind those locked doors and bars live inmates who broke laws and threatened society, in some cases violently and with no remorse.
