The Park House and Webster Ave residences are two supportive housing sites in the Tremont section of the Bronx for low-income and formerly homeless families and individuals. Both buildings are new construction, developed on the same plot of land, and connected by an outdoor courtyard area. CUCS staff provide social services at both sites. The Webster houses 170 tenants and Park House houses 20 special needs tenants.
The Social Worker provides a range of clinical services to tenants to help them live full and satisfying lives in the community; helping their team and program to function well and meet their contractual obligations to various funding agencies. Services that the social worker will be expected to provide include, but are not limited to, supportive counseling, outreach, written assessments, case management, advocacy, and crisis intervention. The Social Worker will have also the opportunity to facilitate organized classes and activities, as well as serve as an assistant team leader in a variety of capacities, building their own leadership skills to develop management skills. The social worker will work closely with internal and external collaterals, to deliver comprehensive person centered services. The Social Worker will receive weekly clinical supervision that meets the requirements for LCSW hours, as defined by the state of NY, and have access to all CUCS in-service and community trainings.
