Program Overview: Host Homes is a national model that has been around for over 25 years, currently a pilot program in San Francisco. The Host Homes program matches LGBTQ+ youth (18-24 years old) with volunteer Hosts in San Francisco, who can provide a private bedroom or spare space with access to a kitchen and bathroom for 3 months to 1 year. During their time in the program, youth work with Case Managers to create Individualized Service Plans (ISPs), focusing on housing as an overarching goal along with interpersonal relationships, employment, education, and health and wellness. Case Managers support youth in achieving their goals, maintaining a successful relationship with their Hosts, and exiting the program with new life skills and longer-term housing.
JOB SUMMARY: The Host Homes Case Manager provides overall coordination and supervision of youth in Host Homes by conducting screenings, case management, and additional support services.

In coordination with the Program Manager, this position will be responsible for setting program objectives, implementing strategies, ensuring objectives are met, and being attentive and responsive to evolving community needs. This position involves a high level of community engagement and accountability.
Compensation will be $28.85/hourly
