Outreach Case Manager

Who are we?
Catholic Charities was founded in 1920 with the mission of providing compassionate and quality social services to those in need. In our 100+ years of operation, we have prioritized, adapted, and created several unique programs and services to address the unmet needs of people impacted most by hardship. We remove barriers to make our vital services more accessible to families and individuals living in communities across the ten 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 professionals who are committed to serving people of all faiths and backgrounds.  We are a proud recipient of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Top Workplaces award, for 2016, 2017, 2018, 2020, 2021.

What is the purpose of our Outreach & Case Management Program?
The goal of Catholic Charities’ Outreach & Case Management Program is to help clients attain a greater degree of self-sufficiency and overall improvement in their lives. The program focuses on assisting clients to evaluate and prioritize their needs and then develop a sustainable 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 that will meet their needs such as attaining food and clothing, translation/interpretation, medical care, material resources, counseling services, educational and job opportunities, and other available community resources.

The Case Manager works together with clients, at no cost, to identify issues, problem solve, and create a plan to address long term needs and transform lives.  This role regularly collaborates with and refers to other Catholic Charities programs and staff as well as other local community partners and resources.

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.

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).

Why should I apply?
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 created a unique and challenging opportunity for an individual to expand services into a new community to make a direct, meaningful, and positive impact.

This would be a rewarding 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.
