The Case Manager will work in an interim housing setting to provide case management for high barrier clients with a variety of complex health, functional, and social needs who are entering our shelter system from homelessness. The interim housing experience for clients will focus on building skills, reducing mental health and functional barriers, and strengthening community social service linkages necessary for the client to fully integrate into the community once they leave interim housing. Interim housing clients are referred to as “guests” and provided with a home-like environment coupled with support and case management services to develop a plan to transition back into the community.
The Case Manager works as part of a larger interim team and collaborates with other departments internal and external to PATH as new guests are admitted into Interim Housing. The Case Manager will assist these guests in breaking the cycle of homelessness by establishing and pursuing a permanent housing plan and accessing and maintaining necessary services among health care and social services through a coordinated system. The Case Manager will provide individualized guest support throughout this entire journey by helping each guest develop a plan to address barriers, increase income, and secure and maintain permanent housing. As part of the plan, the Navigator will identify each area in which guests will need assistance to accomplish the outlined goals and objectives (i.e. scheduling appointments, applying for public benefits, linking to health and mental health care and substance abuse services, etc.) and work collaboratively with the guests to make gains and achieve the outlined goals.
