JOIN THE GUARDIAN LIGHT FAMILY

Guardian Light Family Services (GLFS) empowers families toward a safe and nurturing environment in Central and Western Nebraska communities.  We provide skill building and support through Family Support Services, Supervised Visits, Foster Homes and Drug Testing with families referred by the Department of Human Services.  GLFS employees work with family members in the client’s home to assist with areas of parenting, nutrition, sobriety, healthy relationships, money management and home stability. 

Top 6 Reasons to Join Our Team
  1. MAKING A DIFFERENCE: Are you motivated by the power of purpose? Does a career in helping others make you feel fulfilled? Be a part of the GLFS process by partnering with families as they work toward healthier lifestyles. 
  2. INDEPENDENT WORK ENVIRONMENT: There are no set “office” hours or cubicles; just the expectation of excellent customer service, communication and schedules/decisions that are created in the best interest of the client. Weekly billing hours and documentation deadlines have a flexibility that is not offered in traditional office settings. Staff often work a combination of days and evenings during the week with a full day on Saturday or Sunday to meet the client’s needs.  
    1. RESUME BUILDER: GLFS is a great way to build experience in the field due to our training program. This helps to give you a solid foundation for your career.  Many of our staff are currently working toward receiving their Bachelor or Master’s degrees while being employed for Guardian Light Family Services.
    2. GREAT BENEFITS: Paid Time Off (PTO) accrual starts with the first pay period for qualifying employees – earning up to two weeks your first year of employment. This is in addition to the 8 paid holiday days for full-time employees. GLFS’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available to all employees starting with their first day of work. EAP provides free counseling services and access to a number of free resources and trainings.  In addition, GLFS has excellent insurance benefits for qualifying employees such and major medical, dental and vision with a large variety of insurance options for all employees such as disability, term and whole life, accidental injuries and death, cancer, heart and stroke. GLFS  is also a strong contributor to major medical health insurance premium costs for employee plans.
    3. TRAVELING: Working for GLFS means that your office goes where you go. Employees sometimes drive up to an hour to visit a client, which gives you a “paid opportunity” to truly enjoy the beauty of Nebraska’s countryside.
    4. GROWTH OPPORTUNITY: GLFS is a young company that is growing fast.  There is opportunity for those with vision, creativity and management skills to help us to grow to reach more families and communities!

    IN THE FIELD

    Joining our team means having a remote office that allows you to see what the Nebraska countryside has to offer. These photos are from GLFS staff who were on their way to work with clients.

    Seeing a client reach their goals and work their way through the process to reunification is the most rewarding thing to witness. I chose this career because many of my clients have never experienced support to help them out of challenging situations – And, I get to be the person to guide them through a process that allows them to see potential in the community around them as well as in themselves.
