This position is responsible for making proactive contact to improve patient outcomes, increase patient compliance, enhance patient advocacy, and develop cooperative relationships with other services and community resources that support clinical care. Duties also include referral management, direct patient communications, data tracking and reporting, and assisting with resolving barriers to individual and system-wide access to services and resources.

Job Duties Specific to the Grant Contract Requirements

Begin intake and assessment of housing and service needs using the VI-SPDAT: As part of the coordinated assessment strategy, the Community Case Manager will utilize the VI-SPDAT to provide both initial assessments of homeless clients and/or a full assessment to determine their initial pressing issues and service needs. The homeless household is prioritized for housing based on the results, and the Community Case Manager notifies them. Once a homeless household is prioritized, it is provided assistance to access and maintain housing. Further use of the SPDAT in regular intervals once the household has been housed allows staff to track improvements.
Use of the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) for client data and the Coordinated Entry Process: CHA does not currently participate in the HMIS, so we will need to create new users in the system, train the Community Case Manager, and enter data on the clients served. Participation in the coordinated entry processes will help the Community Case Managers prioritize assistance based on vulnerability and severity of service needs to ensure that people who need assistance the most can receive it.
Creation of a housing and stabilization plan: Because the Community Case Manager will have a low caseload, they can spend considerable time with a client to jointly develop a housing and stabilization plan. This plan will address short-term stabilization, with a focus on lowering barriers to entry, and including housing placement and identification of needs for ongoing supports.
Coordination with service providers: Care coordination is at the heart of case management, ensuring that housing and social services address the client's issues seamlessly. The Community Case Manager will facilitate the client's entry to supportive services and will advocate for the client's access to options and services. The Community Case Managers will also coordinate with other service providers routinely through the Reno Area Alliance for the Homeless (RAAH).
