Position Type & Concern Area(s)
Organization Description
The Lincoln Park Community Shelter began in 1985 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 and volunteer-driven. Our mission reflects this consistent connection to the community: The LPCS brings communities together to empower adults who are experiencing homelessness to make and sustain life changes.
Position Description

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 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 the community at large. Through this relationship, clients are able to connect to other social service agencies, resulting in meeting the clients' needs and goals.
