Children's Home of Northern Kentucky

Meaningful careers can be hard to come by, but at CHNK Behavioral Health, every day presents an opportunity to provide hope and opportunity through your work.

CHNK is an inclusive, innovative, and inspiring community of healing. Clients receive excellent care from our team because our team members themselves receive excellent care: robust health and wellness benefits, ample personal time off, access to state of the art technology, 403b plans with dollar for dollar matches, integrated self-care plans, and multiple opportunities for professional development.

Mission-driven staff, empowered by one another, serve youth and families who have been affected by mental health disorders, addiction, abuse, neglect, and other trauma. We work as one team. We embrace and celebrate what makes each of us unique. Hope and opportunity emerge not only for clients, but also for every team member at CHNK.

CHNK is currently hiring for MST positions, many of which come with a signing bonus (up to $5,000 for certain positions!)


The mission of CHNK Behavioral Health is to be a trauma-informed healthcare organization focused on creating holistic partnerships for health and wellness that are inclusive, innovative, and inspiring. 

CHNK envisions a community free from adverse environments and childhood experiences that limit hope and opportunity – a community that is safe, acknowledges human emotion and loss, and empowers future possibilities.

Non-Violence: We value a safe community that is free from physical, psychological, social, and moral violence.
Democracy: We value active participation and empowerment in the decision-making process.
Growth & Change: We value focusing on the future by setting achievable goals and breaking dysfunctional patterns.
Social Learning: We value collaborative thinking and problem solving to break dysfunctional and repetitive patterns of behavior.
Open Communication: We value a community that tolerates expression of emotions and openly explores interpersonal and organizational issues.
Emotional Intelligence: We value the ability to understand the relationship between our clients’ negative experiences and their emotions and behaviors.
Social Responsibility: We value a community in which people feel a sense of responsibility and care for each other and the group as a whole, and in which people are held accountable for their actions.
