Job Duties Specific to the Grant Contract Requirements

Begin intake and assessment of housing and service needs using the VI-SPDAT: As part of the coordinated assessment strategy, the Community Case Manager will utilize the VI-SPDAT to provide both initial assessments of homeless clients and/or a full assessment to determine their initial pressing issues and service needs. The homeless household is prioritized for housing based on the results, and the Community Case Manager notifies them. Once a homeless household is prioritized, it is provided assistance to access and maintain housing. Further use of the SPDAT in regular intervals once the household has been housed allows staff to track improvements.
Use of the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) for client data and the Coordinated Entry Process: CHA does not currently participate in the HMIS, so we will need to create new users in the system, train the Community Case Manager, and enter data on the clients served. Participation in the coordinated entry processes will help the Community Case Managers prioritize assistance based on vulnerability and severity of service needs to ensure that people who need assistance the most can receive it.
Creation of a housing and stabilization plan: Because the Community Case Manager will have a low caseload, they can spend considerable time with a client to jointly develop a housing and stabilization plan. This plan will address short-term stabilization, with a focus on lowering barriers to entry, and including housing placement and identification of needs for ongoing supports.
Coordination with service providers: Care coordination is at the heart of case management, ensuring that housing and social services address the client's issues seamlessly. The Community Case Manager will facilitate the client's entry to supportive services and will advocate for the client's access to options and services. The Community Case Managers will also coordinate with other service providers routinely through the Reno Area Alliance for the Homeless (RAAH).
Monitoring: The Community Case Manager will meet often with the client to monitor progress, identify emerging issues, and encourage progress in meeting identified goals. Building upon the results of the original assessment, the Case Manager will conduct periodic follow-up assessments using the SPDAT to measure outcomes over time.

Research Associate/Project Coordinator

We are seeking a full-time Research Associate/Project Coordinator (RA/PC) to work on two NIH-funded studies and another grant-funded research project.

The RA/PC will provide research support and coordination for three qualitative and mixed methods research projects with an emphasis on cancer, genomics, bioethics, and clinical trial participation. One project is a complex bioethics research study about breast cancer screening funded by the NIH. The second project is part of national consortium on genomic sequencing, and focused on genetic counseling communication for population-based cancer genomic sequencing. The third project is a community based participatory research study of a clinical trials education intervention for low income women with breast cancer. The second and third projects focus on access to genomic/genetic testing and clinical trials for medically underserved populations.

Duties include literature reviews, recruiting and corresponding with research participants, managing petty cash for participant incentives, IRB applications, data management, qualitative data analysis (e.g. using Atlas ti) and manuscript preparation. Working in close communication with research partners, s/he will set up a participant tracking and data management system and maintain the system. The RA/PC will facilitate team communications, meetings, timelines, and operations, and coordinate human research protection activities, including interactions with the IRB. The RA/PC will be expected to work independently while also facilitating collaboration and managing direction from the Principal Investigators and Project Director. Depending on experience, the individual may also conduct qualitative interviews and assist in leading focus groups with study participants.

Subject matter familiarity with cancer or cancer prevention, bioethics, social science methods, qualitative research, clinical trials, public health or health policy is strongly preferred. Previous experience working in collaboration with community based organizations would be highly valued but is not required. Assignments to assist on other research studies will be made as needed.
