Case Worker Position Details

Case Workers (called Independent Living Skills, or ILS Trainers) provide one-on-one daily living training to individuals with disabilities as they work towards their personal goals and overall independence. The focus of the trainer is to develop rapport, and from this base then move to working with the person on their goals. These typically include things like: increasing community engagement, learning budgeting, managing their health care needs, learning to use public transportation, developing job skills, and learning to maintain a home. The Specialist role has a strong focus on case management, and being able to work independently while taking a team approach is essential. In addition to working directly with our clients, the Specialist will also participate in a variety of team meetings, complete paperwork as needed, and communicate effectively with all parties involved.

This job is a part-time or full time position, $20-$22/hr. Because our clients need support at different times, weekday, evening and weekend shifts are available.
