Are you looking for an opportunity to help young adults who face barriers build sustainable futures while working in a trauma-informed and supportive culture? Are you an experienced case manager with supervisory experience? If so, apply to be our Manager of Support Services.
Crossroads Campus was founded in 2010 and is an IRS designated 501(c)(3) serving Nashville, Tennessee. We are committed to improving the community and the world around us by bringing neglected animals and youth together to learn from each other and heal together. Through our programs, we enhance empathy and compassion for all living things through positive interactions with animals. We educate and empower people to take care of their pets, we find loving homes for dogs and cats and we offer affordable housing and an entrance to the workforce for young adults who face barriers.
Reporting to the Program Director, the Manager of Support Services is responsible for day-to-day oversight and supervision of the case management team. The manager will be responsible for all aspects of case management to ensure program participants receive equitable services that are strengths-based, culturally sensitive and provide access to opportunity and safe, stable housing. This position is a critical member of the program team, serving as a role model for young adults and working closely with other Crossroads’ leadership team members to ensure that programs and deliverables are integrated across the organization and the community.
