The Case Coordinator will provide comprehensive, trauma-informed case management services to clients new to Exodus whose needs or immigration status do not fit into the scope of other programming, primarily serving clients that are seeking asylum and certain eligible Haitian and Cuban entrants. The Case Coordinator will work closely with the Director of Extended Services and other staff to develop the program and engage with community providers to identify resources beneficial to new client groups.
Exodus Refugee Immigration welcomes refugees and asylees to Indiana and offers them a place to call home. We work to arrange housing, food and clothing, case management, as well as education, employment and health services for individuals and families starting out in their new lives. As an independent, non-sectarian, 501(c)(3) non-profit agency, Exodus is part of a network that works with Church World Service's Immigration and Refugee Program (CWS/IRP) in the resettlement of refugees from all over the world.
The Case Coordinator position will be flexible in who it is serving related to ongoing changes in the immigration system. The Case Coordinator will be cross-trained and may assist in serving certified and pre-certified victims of human trafficking based on agency case load needs. The Case Coordinator will make appropriate referrals and follow up for ongoing care. Systems the Case Coordinator will engage with include legal, housing, medical, food, and cultural communities. The clients referred to the Case Coordinator are often in vulnerable situations that require immediate follow up. Staff must set good boundaries with clients while remaining flexible to evolving needs.
