A member of a multi-disciplinary team responsible for ensuring HPP consumers (chronically homeless and struggling with substance use disorders and/or serious mental illness) are provided with 24/7 intensive case management services that allow them to locate, acquire, and maintain permanent housing. These services include basic eligibility assessments, psycho-education (group and/or individual), coordination of medical needs, coordination of appointments/referrals with community providers, housing placement assistance, home visits, conducting psychiatric and medical assessments, and managing and monitoring psychotropic medication administration as needed. The HPP is a voluntary program that focuses on the Pathways Housing First model, which incorporates housing with enhancement of the consumer’s strengths rather than their substance abuse/mental illness, symptoms, and psychiatric history. The program will rely on the talents, skills, and abilities of all its team members in order to function effectively, and achieve the program goals. The program is under the direct supervision of the Helping Hands Hawaii (HHH) Medical Director, HPP Team Leader (TL), and HHH Director of Behavioral Health, to ensure adequate staff to support a safe, structured, and therapeutic environment in which members and staff work. The ICM is to comply with the company code of ethics, confidentiality practices, HIPAA, safety and all other applicable policies and procedures.
