Become a Foster Parent
Join our internship program
Your career choice shows that you’ve already made an important decision. You want more than just a job. You need a mission-driven career where you can put your passion to work for people who are struggling with life’s challenges.
If you’re a graduate student in Social Work, Counseling or Marriage and Family Therapy, we’d like to talk to you.
At Beech Brook, you’ll find the opportunities you’re seeking, providing trauma-informed mental health services and support for children and families when and where they need it most…in homes, schools, foster care, early childhood treatment or outpatient counseling.
You’ll learn from licensed professionals as you gain hands-on experience putting your education and training to work. You’ll find everything you need to launch your career, along with the satisfaction of knowing that you’re making a difference for some of our community’s most vulnerable children and parents.
