 Position Summary

Reporting to the Family Partner Manager, the Housing Case Manager is responsible for

providing case management (which includes accessing homelessness prevention

resources) to families in order to help them avoid homelessness.  The Housing Case Manager will be responsible for providing intervention and follow-up case management services for families

who have been referred for homelessness prevention services through partner

agencies and/or received eviction prevention funding and services through

Project Hope’s community walk-in process, as well as other families assigned by

his/her supervisor.

Agency & Program

Background

Project Hope works in partnership with families so they can move up and out of poverty.

We do this by being a catalyst for change in the lives of families and in the

systems that keep them poor; developing and providing family support solutions

for homelessness and poverty; and advocating for just public policies that

strengthen families.

Located in Boston’s Dudley Street neighborhood, Project Hope is at the forefront of

efforts in the city to move families beyond homelessness and poverty. It was

founded in 1981 by the Little Sisters of the Assumption who first settled in

the Dudley area in 1947 to live and work with the neighborhood families. 

In the 1980s when family homelessness became a crisis in Boston and the state,

the Sisters opened their doors and welcomed families to stay with them, and

Project Hope was launched. Once best known as a family shelter, today Project

Hope offers an array of services to assist families – especially low-income

single mothers – in gaining the resources and skills to overcome their

impoverished circumstances.

In 2006, Project Hope opened an attractive Community Building on Dudley Street –

the first LEED Silver certified, earth-friendly building in Roxbury – to serve

as its headquarters and a neighborhood center for job training, adult

education, housing counseling, community empowerment, and more. Just a few

blocks away, the original site remains home to the family shelter.
