Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Gate Attendant in Victoria, Texas


Are you interested in making a life-saving difference for children and adolescents? Would you enjoy being part of a team working to change the world for the better?

If you answered YES, then consider joining our Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health team!

In response to the humanitarian crisis at America’s ports of entry, Devereux will be providing short-term shelter care services for unaccompanied children who have come to the United States without a parent or legal guardian. Devereux will provide extremely high-quality, trauma-informed residential and educational services for unaccompanied children, with intense supports for their social and emotional health. We will also ensure they receive excellent and immediate physical healthcare including pediatric, dental and nutritional supports for every child.

Devereux’s ultimate goal is to ensure every unaccompanied child who receives our services is successfully and quickly discharged into the loving care of their family sponsor and, during the short time they are with us, have received best-in-class medical, therapeutic, recreational and educational services designed specifically to address the traumas they have sustained during, and often before, their migration journey. This is a very high benchmark to set, but we have already begun partnering with leading legal defense nonprofits to ensure children in our care have access to the finest immigration advocates and supports our country offers.

The Security Guard will assist, direct and monitor all people entering and leaving the facility property. Interact with staff and patients in a professional manner at all times. This position reports to Assistant Program Director.
