Job Description

Job Title: Case Manager

Employer: Panza dba Quixote Communities, a 501c3 nonprofit

Location: Orting Veterans Village in Orting, Washington

Who We Are:
We strongly believe at Quixote Communities that everyone deserves safe and affordable housing. We work to provide housing for our community members experiencing homelessness in Thurston, Pierce, and Mason Counties in Washington state. We manage tiny house villages that offer communal living with rich peer mentorship and support. Our staff work side-by-side with residents to help them reach their individual goals and to connect them with various community services. Our houses are economically efficient, costing less than half of what it costs to build your average apartment. We also leave a smaller footprint with our less than 300 sq. ft. homes. But the most rewarding part of it all, is that our residents are no longer homeless. Housing is a primary need, first and foremost. Once residents are housed, they are then able to work on other aspects of their lives such as education, employment, substance use, physical/mental health and future housing needs. This is no easy feat. Our residents are resilient survivors, and we see their successes here every day.

Job Summary:
The Case Manager provides on-site services for the previously homeless residents of Shelton Veterans Village, including advocacy; resident-defined, goal-oriented service plans; identifying appropriate resources to implement those plans; and helping residents make positive connections with peers and the wider community.
