IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services, www.irisct.org), a dynamic nonprofit organization in New Haven CT, has an immediate opening for the part-time position of Case Management Assistant. IRIS helps refugees and asylees— people fleeing persecution in their home countries who are invited to the US by the federal government—to start new lives and become self-sufficient, contributing members of their communities. IRIS currently serves clients from countries such as Afghanistan, DR Congo, Eritrea, Iran, Iraq, Sudan and Syria.
The Case Management Assistant is part of the Case Management team that provides the core services of resettlement to refugees, Special Immigrant Visa holders, asylees, and other IRIS clients with a specific emphasis on helping the Reception & Placement (R&P) case managers to provide services to clients within their first 90 days. The Case Management Assistant works closely with R&P case managers, interns and volunteers to ensure that arrivals are well prepared, clients have access to basic services and required documentation is obtained.
