CASE MANAGER- ACT

Center For Urban Community Services

Description

The CUCS Assertive Community Treatment Team (ACT) is a field based program serving individuals diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness whose needs have not been met by traditional clinic based services. The ACT team outreaches and enrolls people into its services, provides comprehensive mental health and social service support, helps to obtain and maintain housing, works with individuals to return to a full and satisfying life in the community, and assists with an eventual transition to less intensive services in the community. ACT services are delivered by a multi-disciplinary, mobile, professional team that utilizes a harm reduction approach and assumes total responsibility for case management, rehabilitation, psychiatric and substance use services. The ACT team provides at least 80% of its services in the community, primarily through home visits. The program is located in the North-East Bronx and serves clients living in the Bronx and Manhattan.

The Case Manager is responsible for working with an assigned group of 10-12 clients to help them live full and satisfying lives in the community; helping their team and program to function well and meet their contractual obligations; and striving, as appropriate to their role, to fulfill the CUCS programs’ core purpose, core values and vision statements.
