Case Manager

Build meaningful and impactful relationships with the youth in SailFuture’s care. 

Who we're looking for

SailFuture Case Manager’s primary responsibility is to build meaningful and impactful relationships with the youth in SailFuture’s care. This position includes traditional case management responsibilities, as well as non-traditional responsibilities as part of the large SailFuture continuum of care (see below).

Case managers will have no more than 10 teens under their care and supervision, and nearly 20 of these youth will reside in SailFuture’s group homes within minutes of each other in south St. Petersburg. 

Unlike traditional case management positions, this role also includes wraparound services to best meet the unique needs of teenagers in foster care. By design, case managers are expected to build stronger and more supportive relationships with the youth under their supervision. Their work extends beyond traditional case management and is inclusive of academic, vocational, and emotional support.

Anyone applying for this position should possess a “whatever it takes” mentality when it comes to meeting the needs of the kids in their care.

This position will work in close partnership with the SailFuture school, mental health team, Group Homes, and the Life Skills Center.

This is a salaried position and is not eligible for overtime pay.
