This is the game changer social work role you didn't think existed. We know ending poverty is possible, so we do things a little differently. We have taken the old understandings of case management and turned them on their heads by creating a case management model focused on proven coaching techniques, wraparound services, and flexible, strategic financial assistance. We aren't just guessing and hoping our methods work- we are researching them both internally and externally with academic partners to make sure they are tested and sound practices. Then we use our learning to teach others and advocate for changes on a national scale.
So if you are looking for a typical social work position, working within strict funder-determined methods of practice, and using methods that were new and shiny over thirty years ago, then this isn't the job for you. However, if you want to disrupt the patterns of how social services and government entities have approached welfare for decades, if you think your neighbors and community members deserve the dignity to not just survive, but thrive, if you want your work to be the basis that future social work research and legislation is based on, then we'd like for you to join us!
