Benchmark Human Services has grown to become one of the most respected organizations in the country in the areas of intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and behavioral health. For over 60 years our diversified programs and services have empowered people with disabilities reach their best life!

Benchmark’s Group Home programs assist adults with daily activity skills to gain independence in small personal home settings. Our diverse and dynamic programs can’t operate efficiently without the strength and heart of our interdisciplinary team. We are currently seeking a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW or LCSW-C) or a Licensed Counselor (LMSW, LAPC, LAMFT, CACII) to join our team and ensure the highest quality services are provided to our clients.

Since 1960, Benchmark has been empowering marginalized populations to see their potential.  We are committed to realizing the full potential of EVERYONE – those we serve, our partners and vendors, and our employees, who bring our mission to life each day. We actively strive to be a workplace that honors the unique experiences of our employees. Benchmark believes we are stronger, better, more effective in our pursuits when we are diverse; when we are equitable; and when we create space for everyone to be their authentic selves.


The Licensed Clinical Social Worker is responsible for successfully conducting case management coordination and therapy for individuals within Benchmark’s Group Home program. The LCSW will consult and assist with other clinicians and direct care staff in order to provide quality services for Benchmark clients. The clinician must ensure that these services achieve Benchmark’s mission and meet our goals and standards.
