Overview

The care coordinator will work with members of the Jubilee Center on-site and at Jubilee members' residences and other community-based sites. Supports provided to Jubilee members enrolled in the care coordination program may include: help with daily living skills, financial management, paying bills, scheduling appointments, transportation, conflict resolution, and applying and accessing benefits such as Medicaid, Snap, LIHEAP, housing vouchers, and Social Security benefits. The care coordinator will also be trained in the SOAR process and assist Jubilee members with SSI applications.

The ability to work well with other staff, problem solve, think of creative solutions to complex problems and support the operations of the Jubilee Center are also important.

This is a grant-funded opportunity to create and shape a new program that will help Jubilee members remain stably housed, manage their illness, and improve their quality of life.

Staff providing case management can address health and safety issues at the individual’s housing unit and can help mediate any issues with the property owner. Having stable and safe housing will improve mental health management. People living with SMI who have a sense of self-efficacy are more likely to manage symptoms, take medication, and seek help when needed. The sum of these outcomes is increased life satisfaction.

Community Cultivator at Alia

Contact Name: Kate Mejicano
Contact Email: kate@aliainnovations.org

Job description:

Alia is a Minnesota-based national nonprofit that is laser-focused on building a new way of work in child welfare that obsoletes the need for foster care by keeping families safely together, with a special emphasis on building anti-racist practices and systems. We are hiring for two new positions, based out of Rock County, WI (in-person—when it is safe to do so again—in either the Beloit or Janesville offices, at least two days per week). Both positions are full-time with benefits, including best-in-class organizational wellbeing support.

We are a team filled with optimism and joy; we laugh a lot. Of course, we each get bristly or off-base sometimes, and we apologize or provide loving feedback. Then we move on. As a five-year-old agency, our goal is to bring the agility of a start-up into our next phase-- pairing focus and rigor with a spirit of learning and a mindset of planned abundance.

Moss does not grow underfoot at Alia! We’ve doubled in size every year for the past 5 years. We clip along with excellence, and we do not let perfection become the enemy of movement and learning. With our team-of-teams style of work, you will lead projects and be a strong team member. We work hard and make our own luck, yet also find that who and what we need arrive right on time. If your dreamiest dream job is fixed, linear, and task-oriented, this is likely not the best place for you.

However, if you have an entrepreneurial spirit, demonstrate a dynamite track record, bring authenticity, vulnerability, a sense of humor, an anti-racism approach, and can make fast friends, get in touch by sending your resumé, letter of interest, and salary requirements to kate@aliainnovations.org. Candidates of color and/or candidates with lived experience in child welfare are highly encouraged to apply. All positions are open until filled with our ideal candidates; however, for first-round consideration, apply by April 30th at 8:00am Central. We encourage you to share our openings with the brightest, most innovative people you know!

Project Purpose Statement: Building a Rock-Solid Community. Co-designing with Families and Communities to Reduce Family Separation and Eliminate Racial Disparities in Foster Care in Rock County, Wisconsin.

The purpose of this project is to support Rock County Human Services Department, families, and community stakeholders in co-designing new ways to support families that reduce racial disparities, reduce out-of-home placements, and increase the quality of life for all Rock County families and children by building a “Rock-Solid” Community.

Community Cultivator is a new position and will serve as the liaison between Rock County Department of Human Services, community partners, and families. The Community Cultivator will be employed by Alia, but embedded in, and officing on location with, the Rock County Human Services Team. The Community Cultivator will create an eco-map of community resources, leaders, and needs; will develop or build upon strong relationships with community leaders and families; and will play a key role in the family and community co-design process. Ideal candidates will be from the Rock County community with built-trust to facilitate connections, communication, and learning between community leaders, partners, families, and the Rock County Human Services Department.

Additional Current and Upcoming Opportunities to be part of changing child welfare systems:
Rock County Human Services Department--Children, Youth, and Families Supervisors Alia’s partners at Rock County HSD have several current and upcoming openings in their Children, Youth, and Families division. They are working to build a team of CYF Supervisors who are prepared to build a new way of work and passionate about keeping children safely with their families.
