You will work as part of a clinical team to assess member needs, to participate in the development of individual service plans and to act as a member advocate and liaison with families and community agencies. You will be responsible for providing on-call crisis intervention services, as well as weekend and holiday coverage.
As the subject matter expert on all housing needs, you determine appropriate housing resources for our members and assist with locating appropriate housing of their choice. You will provide assistance in accessing affordable, safe/decent housing and permanent housing for our members and ensure that the members’ tenant rights are upheld.
