Case Manager Openings


Did you earn a degree in Psychology or Social Services? Are you passionate about helping Seattle's most vulnerable population? Are you looking for a position that can provide you experience in the field or launch your career? If so, Case Management at DESC may be for you.

DESC is the largest multi-service agency serving homeless adults in the Puget Sound region. DESC opened its doors in 1979 as an emergency shelter, a place for vulnerable adults living with behavioral health disorders and chronic homelessness to come in out of the cold for the night. In 2009, DESC celebrated 30 years of opening doors to end homelessness. Today our mission is not merely to offer shelter, but to end the homelessness of our community's most vulnerable people, through an integrated array of clinical services and supportive housing that allows men and women to reclaim their lives and reach their highest potential.
