Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program Sr. Case Manager - Per Diem, Nights in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts
Who We Are:
Since 1985, BHCHP’s mission has been to ensure unconditionally equitable and dignified access to the highest quality health care for all individuals and families experiencing homelessness in greater Boston. Over 12,000 homeless individuals are cared for by Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program each year. We are committed to ensuring that every one of these individuals has access to comprehensive health care, from preventative dental care to cancer treatment. Our clinicians, case managers, and behavioral health professionals work in more than 60 locations to serve some of our community’s most vulnerable—and most resilient—citizens.
From our earliest days as a program, we have always sought to do work that is transformational: recognizing our shared humanity; centering dignity, compassion, mutual respect and supporting the right of every individual to access the highest levels of health care and every staff member to reach their fullest potential. We continue to be committed to building bridges and breaking down barriers, including systemic racism which harms us all. We provide community-based health care services that are compassionate, dignified, and culturally appropriate, incorporating social determinants of health, with the goal of breaking down the physical and systemic barriers that our patients face.
Bilingual, Bicultural, LGBTQIA identifying, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are encouraged to apply.

As our new Senior Case Manager, you’ll work as part of our multidisciplinary team to manage the milieu of the stay-in beds and address the needs of the patients. This will involve the coordination of care for patients admitted or transferred to the Stacy Kirkpatrick House Stay-in Bed Program from our Barbara McInnis House facility. You’ll be directly involved in providing supportive patient-focused interventions, helping to coordinate patient activities, following up on the discharge plans started by the Barbara McInnis House case managers, and coordinating with the clinic nurse regarding medical stability and readiness for discharge. If and when covering the evening and overnight shifts, you will be the only 24-hour staff member for the stay-in beds. Therefore, you should be comfortable working independently as you will be handling building operations in the absence of other staff members.
