Using a harm reduction approach, PPP offers culturally sensitive, non-judgmental services to address the health and social service needs of drug users and sex workers in Philadelphia. PPP meets people where they are, providing information and access to resources with dignity and respect. PPP promotes harm reduction through mobile medical care, sterile syringe exchange, referrals to social services, and comprehensive prevention case management services.
The Housing Case Manager will assist in the operation of PPP’s expanding housing services program. They will serve a dual role – supporting residents of PPP’s emergency respite program in developing housing plans and engaging homeless and unstably housed individuals through PPP’s drop-in and assisting them in accessing necessary resources. This work will build on PPP’s expertise in identifying and working with individuals who face addiction and/or homelessness. The housing case manager will work with individuals to identify housing related goals and action plans. They will also assist the case management team in addressing the housing needs of clients in our medical, drop-in, and medication assisted treatment programs.
