FamilyAid is Greater Boston’s leading provider of solutions to family homelessness. Our mission is to empower parents and caregivers facing homelessness to secure and sustain housing and build strong foundations for their children’s futures.
We prevent homelessness whenever possible; reduce harm if homelessness can’t be avoided by getting families stably housed as quickly as possible and mitigating trauma, especially for children; and provide wraparound supports for children and parents that foster long-term stability.
Our approach works: families in our care make significant progress towards self-sufficiency within seven months, 64% of whom are rehoused within one year with a 99% retention rate, far outperforming national averages. Most importantly, our parents report that their children are healthier and happier.
We have quadrupled in size in the last five years and remain on an exciting growth trajectory to serve more than 5,000 children and parents this year. We have launched bold new strategies to reduce two-generation homelessness by deepening and increasing our prevention, housing, and supportive services for children and parents. Significant new funding powers our strategic vision of serving more families through a deepened 2 Generation approach that reduces homelessness’s cause, scope, and impact.
To support these strategies, the agency seeks a dynamic and driven Bilingual (Spanish / Haitian Creole) Case Manager, Community Based Shelter Program.
The Case Manager will assess families for strengths and needs, develop plans to best meet goals defined by family, staff, and EOHLC. Will maintain a caseload of families participating in the shelter and stabilization programs and will provide ongoing case management to promote eventual stability in permanent housing. This position will adapt case management services to best meet the needs of each family, with a focus on the safety of all members of each family served and will support recently housed families in maintaining long term housing stability.
The successful candidate will have a bachelor’s degree, BSW degree is preferred, with experience in social services. Bilingual (Spanish/Haitian Creole) preferred. MSW degree a plus.
