The Chicago Lights Social Service Center (SSC) connects with over 1,300 adults to encourage self-development, deep connections, and brighter futures through case management, enrichment programming, and food and clothing services. The Stable Housing Case Manager (SHCM) partners with the Associate Director to provide one-on-one case management with motivated guests who are looking for housing that requires an income (employment, benefits, etc.). This includes conducting intake assessments, devising service plans for guests seeking stable housing, enhancing the SSC’s housing resources, and cultivating new relationships with landlords offering affordable housing in the Chicago area.
Additionally, the SHCM oversees a private housing voucher program for participants, geared for guests who have specific barriers to housing. The SHCM will assist guests as they transition into housing through home visits and frequent follow-up regarding progress and barriers in the service plan.
