BILINGUAL COUNSELOR II or III
This is a full time position at 40 hours per week. The work is performed in the community setting with time out on the streets, in homeless shelters, community food programs, and in consumers' homes, with the Street Outreach Team's home base located in Downtown Portland. The schedule is Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:30 pm.
The Bilingual Street Outreach Worker works independently and as a member of a team to provide street outreach and engagement, housing placement, and time limited home based retention supports to individuals and household members impacted by homelessness and mental illness. The Worker must have strong interpersonal skills necessary to develop positive working relationships within the team and assist participants in developing trusting relationships with other individuals and support systems, and assist all participants in accessing program partner services as well as mainstream resources/health programs. The Street Outreach Worker is responsible for conducting outreach services both on the street and with local social service providers with the intent of securing housing and other essential services to resolve homelessness, while supporting a Trauma Informed Care environment. With the high prevalence of trauma among individuals receiving mental health services, it is required the Street Outreach Worker understand the effects of trauma on health, coping, and other aspects of the lives of those we serve. Services will be primarily provided on the street, in the community and in participant’s homes. The primary goal is to quickly place participants into housing and achieve long term housing stability.
