They will be co-supervised by the CAS Supervisors and the DBCFS Supervisors while delivering services under the DBCFS Service Model.
During this transition phase, we will be processing applications for both FamilyService Workers and Children’s Service Workers monthly in order to maintain a pool of qualified candidates.
