477 Intensive Case Manager


Intensive Case Manager – The 477 Intensive Case Manager (ICM) at CITC provides intensive case management for participants of ETSD who are chronically mentally ill, indigent, in crisis, and need specialized support and advocacy due to the challenges they face.  The Intensive Case Manager recognizes participants’ strengths and skills, solving and overcoming chronic challenges and barriers, including personal, vocational, and family issues.  The Intensive Case Manager assists participants who are in crisis but may not fit the eligibility criteria of on-site programs or may need an advocate to help them work through the process of accessing internal and/or external services. The Intensive Case Manager works directly with ETSD staff to provide recommendations for care plans based on referrals from Eligibility Technicians, Job Coaches, Employment Specialists, and other referral sources.
