This position serves 2 days/week at La Puetne Shelter as a case manager for homeless veterans. The Homeless Veterans Program enables our shelter to provide up to two years stay for qualifying veterans, in addition to giving access to local, state, and national resources. This position directly contributes to the overall effort to end veterans' poverty and homelessness across the nation. The primary goal is to give veterans who are homeless a stable, transitional living facility. Daily tasks include conducting weekly check-in sessions with enrolled veterans, coordinating with the Eastern Colorado Health Care System to check eligibility of veterans for enrollment, ensuring appointments are scheduled and tracked, working together with internal and external agencies throughout the SLV to promote synergistic effects and creating/monitoring/updating individual service plans with enrolled veterans. This position also works closely with the Veterans Case Manager at the Outreach Homeless Prevention Program to ensure the health needs of the veterans are met as best as possible, this includes medical, dental, and mental health services.

The other 3 days/week are at the Shelter running the general day-to-day operations and serving as a case manager for non-veteran clients.
