Case Manager/Re-Entry Advocate

Position Type: Part-time
Closing Date: May 31, 2021

As an After Innocence Case Manager & Re-Entry Advocate, you’ll work one-on- one with our exoneree-clients in order to evaluate their eligibility for health care, public benefits, and social services in their communities, and then provide the start-to-finish help each one needs to ensure that they obtain and can make good use of those resources. This is intensive, hands -on case management that requires tenacious follow-up to maximize the chance that each client will get the most out of what is available for them. We partner with other orgs and agencies whenever we can, but frequently we are the client’s primary resource.
You’ll do nearly all of this work by phone or video – the only way we can efficiently reach a very large number of exonerees spread across the country – and often in counties where we have no prior connections or clear paths to get the work done. This one of the great challenges of doing this work.
You’ll also collaborate with the growing After Innocence staff – two social workers, a lawyer, a Medicare benefits expert, and dozens of partner organizations – to problem-solve as a team, and discover ways to better serve our clients, including by developing new areas of assistance, such as adult education, job-seeking assistance, mentorship programs, and peer-to-peer support.
