Job Information

CES Diversion Specialists will manage a caseload of approximately 50 clients.  This position is responsible for professional and constructive engagement with clients seeking shelter services from the Core Network Agencies of San Mateo County. A major function of this position is to engage as many clients as possible who are experiencing a housing crisis and then divert the identified clients from the homeless service system by assisting them in exploring alternative housing resources and by providing the clients with information, guidance and support. The general goal of this position is to reduce the number of people entering emergency shelters and homelessness. Candidate will serve as an integral member of a multi-disciplinary, housing focused service team. Position will use an evidence-informed tool to objectively determine the acuity of needs and services best designed to meet the client’s needs, unless the individual or family can be successfully diverted from services altogether through effective problem solving and access of formal and informal networks they may have for support.

Qualifications:

2 years of prior case management or housing advocacy experience required

2 years of experience working with high risk population, homelessness and crisis
