What can a HUD service coordinator do for you?
Much like a case manager, a U.S. Housing & Urban Development (HUD) service coordinator work on behalf of individual clients by assisting with government forms and program opportunities.
A HUD service coordinator will help with:
- The annual Medicaid re-application.
- The HUD subsidy
- Enrollment in the Kansas Low Income Energy Assistance Program, to get help with utility bills.
- Social Security Disability Assessments
- As well as other forms necessary for assistance, such as Project Deserve.
The CPRF Timbers HUD service coordinator will also:

- Meet with new residents to provide helpful phone numbers and get emergency information.
- Distribute commodities.
- Establish plans with residents to reach personal goals.
- Coordinate with the Independent Living Resource Center counselor to solve problems related to implementing planned health care.
- Help schedule counseling or therapy, if needed; and, if requested, accompany the resident for the first visit.
- Accompany residents, if requested, to any court appearance when a resident is involved with either the criminal or civil judicial system.
- Accompany residents to the hospital under certain circumstances.
- Provide monthly training sessions for the residents on topics that enhance the quality of life at the Timbers.
- Provide staff support for the Timbers Human Service Council.
- Assist residents in linking with local agencies for service and/or vocational needs.
- Be an advocate for Timber residents.
- Assist the residents in registering to vote.
