Breaking cycles of poverty and homelessness in Midcoast Maine
Knox County Homeless Coalition (KCHC) is looking for a compassionate team player who wants to join us in our mission to end the cycle of poverty and homelessness in Mid-coast Maine. We are currently interviewing for a Case Manager to join The Landing Place.
The Landing Place (TLP) is KCHC’s comprehensive youth program which provides support for highly-resilient and often marginalized youth living in Midcoast Maine. We strive to inspire hope, restore purpose and belonging, and break cycles of poverty through outreach, case management, shelter solutions, and a drop-in youth center.
The Case Manager will play a critical role at The Landing Place, supporting high-risk youth clients by helping them to identify needs and goals; advocating for them in the community; and connecting them with appropriate resources. Case Managers are a key part of helping to achieve the agency’s mission on a daily basis. They help to identify and build on strengths, always treat clients with dignity and respect, and ultimately become trusted partners who help clients to reach sustainable independence.
All staff at The Landing Place embrace a strength-based, trauma-informed approach to youth development, act as community advocates on behalf of high-risk youth and families, and develop collaborative partnerships and supportive relationships with local partners throughout the Midcoast. We seek caring, honest, creative, and supportive staff members who are collaborative-minded, solutions-oriented, non-judgemental, and capable of maintaining perspective, as well as a sense of humor. Our staff are passionate about working with teenagers and have a proven ability to support others in caring, courageous and inspiring ways.
The ideal Case Manager candidate will have 3-5 years of case management experience with relevant training in the human service/mental health field. BA in social work or related field is required. Knowledge of community resources and services for children and adolescents, a plus.
This position will pay $17-$21/ hour, based on experience. KCHC offers a competitive salary and benefits package, which includes a choice of health coverage (including an employer-sponsored health savings account for Bronze level coverage), optional dental and vision insurance, paid time-off benefits, 13 paid holidays (including your birthday off, because you deserve it!), and Summer Fridays.
Background and license checks are required prior to hire.
To apply, please submit a resume and a cover letter explaining why you would be a great fit for our team to email@example.com with the job title in the subject line. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the position is filled.
