Tennessee Respite Coalition
Bilingual Respite Coordinator
Tennessee Respite Coalition
For 27 years, the Tennessee Respite Coalition (TRC) has provided much-needed respite and support services to caregivers across the state of Tennessee. We have developed a model program, gaining national recognition and leading the way across the country by providing comprehensive support to caregivers. In June of 2021, we were named a “Rising Star” by ARCH (Access to Respite Care and Help), the foremost national organization on respite. We are seeking an energetic individual to lead outreach efforts across the state, targeted specifically at Latinx/Immigrant populations. The Bilingual Respite Coordinator will work with the Outreach Manager to develop and implement initiatives that increase agency visibility for Latinx/Immigrant communities. They will oversee the planning and implementation of outreach strategies and will cultivate relationships with other agencies, individuals, and other relevant organizations. The Bilingual Respite Coordinator will play a vital role in providing compassionate care management services to support Latinx/immigrant caregivers through the respite process.
This is a part-time position (15 hours per week), with occasional travel. The Bilingual Respite Coordinator must be available evenings and weekends for outreach events. This is a hybrid position that entails working in our Nashville office and from home.
The Tennessee Respite Coalition is committed to actively cultivating and preserving a culture of equity, inclusion, and connectedness. We strive to create a space that enables everyone to bring their full self to the work and that embraces the full spectrum of humanity. These values permeate all aspects of our work.
We are committed to equitable hiring, training, promotional practices, and policies. We value the unique contributions people bring in terms of education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, color, marital status, religion, ability, sexual orientation, and beliefs.
