Area/Program Focus: Mental Health and Violence Prevention Services
Position Summary: The Path 2 Case Manager will provide in-home case management services for the Contra Costa County Children and Family Services (CFS) Bureau’s Differential Response (DR) program. The primary goal of the differential response program is to help at-risk families address their issues and to avoid further need for interaction with Children and Family Services. The Path 2 Case Manager will receive referrals of families meeting the Path 2 criteria from Children and Family Services and will manage a caseload of 12 – 15 families.
Case Managers will engage and establish positive rapport with families who are experiencing multiple stressors impacting their ability to parent effectively and who are consequently at risk of entering the child welfare system. Case Managers will help referred families secure needed services, improve family functioning, enhance child well-being, and avoid further need for interaction with CFS. Services will be individualized and customized to meet the needs of each family. Services will be delivered on days and at hours that accommodate family needs and responsibilities. Case management services will be available during non-business hours, on weekends and on-call on holidays.
