Case Manager – Lincoln Park Community Shelter

The Lincoln Park Community Shelter began nearly 30 years ago as an emergency shelter when local residents became concerned about the homelessness they were witnessing in their neighborhood. These individuals worked with four local churches to provide seasonal shelter. Over time, LPCS has developed structured programs to address individuals' unique homeless circumstances. Today, the Lincoln Park Community Shelter remains community-based, volunteer-driven and privately-funded. Our mission reflects this consistent connection to the community: The LPCS brings communities together to empower homeless men and women to make and sustain life changes.

In order for LPCS clients to reach their maximum potential, each need a stable, safe, healthy, positive place in which to make life changes. The Case Manager is responsible for establishing and maintaining a safe, healthy and respectful relationship with Guests of the interim housing facility. Clients will become more invested in their own life changes when they feel connected to something larger than themselves - a community. The Case Manager encourages clients to engage in LPCS' community and in their immediate community. Through this relationship, clients are able to connect to other social service agencies, resulting in greater social skills and more positive decision-making abilities.
