Our programs at North Star work with the family and the community to help facilitate optimal growth and nurturing throughout times of childhood adversity. Our goal is to help young people get on a track that leads to a life of youthfulness – the life that child and adolescents deserve.

We are currently searching for full-time and part-time Registered Nurses to join our established team. The RN will serve as a Unit Nurse, being responsible for delivering quality general and psychiatric nursing care to patients with emotional or psychiatric disorders.
