Case Manager

Seeds of Faith, Inc

About Seeds of Faith and Lydia’s House of Hope:

Lydia’s House of Hope is a transitional housing program for woman and children in crisis. This 365-day program provides the physical, mental, emotional, and foundational life skills necessary for each woman and child that enters our home to live independently outside of it. This program is not a shelter, nor a rehab. It is a program dedicated to leading these women into a life of sustainable independence by giving them the tools and support necessary to change their lives. This is the program that brings the Homeless to Wholeness….one woman, one child, and one family at a time.


Lydia’s House of Hope is seeking a Case Manager that is ready to multitask in a fast paced environment. We ask our Case Managers to be as good at working alone as they are working with a team, and be forward thinking, anticipating the needs of the residents that are in their care. If you are well rounded, with good boundaries and at least 3 years’ experience working with a caseload of families that have come out of homelessness and/or poverty situations, you are just who we are looking for!

Treating each family with dignity and respect, the Case Manager interviews and conducts intake assessments with potential residents. They routinely meet with residents to discuss their progress, address any unmet needs, and connect them with necessary resources and/or social services. Regular follow up with residents is critical to this position and the health and well-being of the families. The goal is to provide the services and support required for the resident and their family to leave the program being empowered, independent, and self-sufficient.
