Job Summary

The Village at Glencliff (TVG) (www.villageatglencliff.org) is hiring a Resident Case Manager who is, first and foremost, passionate about caring for and housing vulnerable populations. We are a relatively new 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide a healing community for medically vulnerable, unhoused Nashvillians where they can safely recover, stabilize their lives, and imagine their futures.
