The Stability Services Case Manager will provide diversion and short term stabilization services (STSS) as part of Coordinated Entry in Suburban Cook County. Coordinated Entry (CE) is a community-wide system to standardize and expedite the process by which people experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness access housing and homeless resources. Through CE, people experiencing homelessness are matched to services and housing based on their preferences and level of need.
The STSS Case Manager is responsible for stabilizing a participant’s housing situation, with the goal of an immediate hand-off from intake to a diversion assessment to determine level of assistance. The STSS Case Manager connects participants with resources and develops a plan to resolve their housing crisis using solution focused approaches.
The STSS Case Manager will also serve as a back up to the Homeless Prevention Case Manager, in the absence of the HP Case Manager.
