Evening Case Managers - MOC
Center for Urban Community services
The Center for Urban Community Services (CUCS) is a national leader in the development of effective housing and service initiatives. For the past 10 years CUCS has been a part of the Manhattan Outreach Consortium (MOC), an innovative street outreach and housing placement program for people who are homeless and living on the streets of Manhattan. The MOC also includes Breaking Ground and Goddard Riverside Community Center, organizations that have extensive experience serving people experiencing homelessness. In addition to providing outreach and housing placement services, CUCS provides all the psychiatric services, staff training, medical care and IT support for the MOC.
Since the program began in September 2007, it has placed over 1700 people into permanent housing. Because the contract is 10 years old the city’s procurement rules require that it be rebid. The MOC is pursuing another contract and restructuring its operations so that each of the three agencies will now staff an evening, overnight and weekend team. In anticipation of being awarded a new contract beginning July 1, 2017, CUCS is seeking candidates for:
