Licensed Clinician/Program Manager (Bilingual Spanish) – Connected Care
The Priority Center is seeking a full-time Bilingual Spanish Licensed Clinician/Program Manager for its Connected Care Program.

Serving as an aftercare program, The Priority Center provides ongoing supportive services, for no fee, to recently exited clients of our three-week crisis program.
