Catholic Charities seeks Outreach Case Manager (Fond du Lac)

Posted 6/7/2021

See job posting for full details. 

 

Who are we?
Since 1920, our culture at Catholic Charities has been defined by our mission to “provide service to those in need, to advocate for justice and to call upon others to do the same.” We provide several social services that focus on serving the poor, vulnerable, and marginalized in communities across the 10 counties of Southeastern Wisconsin.

A career at Catholic Charities blends social service with professional development. Our staff is made up of a diverse group of passionate individuals who are committed to serving clients of all faiths and backgrounds.  We are a proud recipient of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Top Workplaces award, for 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2020.

What is the purpose of our Outreach & Case Management Program?

The goal of Catholic Charities’ Outreach & Case Management Program is to work with clients to help them attain a greater degree of self-sufficiency and overall improvement in their lives.  The program focuses on the needs of the clients, assisting them in the evaluation and prioritization of their needs, and developing a plan of action.

What will I do as an Outreach Case Manager?

Our Case Managers are true advocates for the client – linking them in times of crisis to services, community resources, and programs to meet their needs such as attaining food and clothes, translation/interpretation, medical care, material resources, counseling services, educational and job opportunities, and other available community resources.  The Case Manager works with clients, at no cost, to identify issues, problem solve, and together create a plan to address long term needs and transform lives.  This role regularly collaborates with other Catholic Charities programs and staff as well as other local community partners and resources.

Why should I apply?

This would be a rewarding and challenging opportunity for a confident, autonomous self-starter who has a passion for helping individuals and families in the community and empower them to achieve their longer-term goals.

Catholic Charities is expanding its Outreach Case Management Program, to provide additional support and resources in communities most in need, adding new Case Management positions in Dodge, Fond Du Lac, and Walworth Counties.  This expansion created a uniquely challenging opportunity for an individual to expand services into a new community to make a direct, meaningful, and positive impact.

What are the requirements?

An Associate’s Degree in Human Development, Family Studies, Human Services, Psychology, Sociology, or related field is required; Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work strongly preferred. 2 years of previous experience in case management, family services or social services, is ideal.  Prior experience at a not-for-profit agency is a plus.  Bilingual in English and Spanish is required.

This position frequently travels throughout the community, which requires a valid driver’s license, reliable transportation and vehicle insurance (liability coverage: $100,000/person and $300,000/accident).

Catholic Charities is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer regardless of race, color, religion, creed, sex, marital status, national origin, disability, age, veteran status, on-the-job injury, sexual orientation, political affiliation or belief. Employment decisions are made without consideration of these or any other factors that employers are prohibited by law from considering.

Catholic Charities also prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities and will reasonably accommodate applicants with a disability, upon request, and will also ensure reasonable accommodation for employees with a disability.
