Description
Urban Pathways serves as the first point of contact for New York City's most vulnerable residents - people living on the streets, in subways, or in public areas. An innovative and data-driven leader, Urban Pathways is known for the effectiveness of our "housing first" approach. We engage individuals where they are in the cycle of homelessness.

Urban Pathways is seeking a part time CTI Licensed Social Worker for our Reentry Project. This innovative grant is designed to house ten seniors (age 50+) who have been incarcerated. This program, funded by a major foundation, is being launched as a pilot program and is intended to prove that supportive housing can prevent homelessness for those exiting incarceration. Urban Pathways intends to develop and document a replicable model for homelessness prevention that can be adopted by other organizations in the sector.

Reporting to the Project Coordinator, the CTI Licensed Social Worker's duties include:

•Locates, develops and maintains relationships with community organizations and resources in collaboration with residential case managers
