Founded in 1945, Lane Council of Governments (LCOG) is one of the oldest councils of governments. Overseen by a Board of Directors, we strive to enhance public services in Lane County and beyond. This collaborative journey includes partnerships with local governments and special districts in the fields of GIS Planning, Personnel Management, Transportation, and Senior and Disability Services. Located in the heart of Eugene, we are home to a thriving university, diverse nightlife, and access to ample recreational opportunities, from the sea to the mountains.

LCOG is committed to a work environment that values the cultural, educational, and life experiences of each employee. We believe that a diverse workforce enables us to deliver culturally competent services to all members of our community. As part of our commitment to diversity, LCOG continues to be an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

We are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job, and that candidate may be one who comes with relevant transferable skills from a variety of sources and experiences. If you are interested in applying, we encourage you to think broadly about your background and skill set for the role.


  • DIVISION: Senior & Disability Services
  • SUPERVISOR: Unit Manager
  • POSITION PURPOSE: This position manages a specialized caseload comprised of adults with disabilities 18-64 years of age and/or senior citizens who have complex needs. The caseload includes clients newly admitted to service, as well as clients who have been receiving services from S&DS for a period of time (i.e., on-going clients). This is a specialized position which will focus on the needs of clients with increased barriers to accessing and retaining services. Barriers may include (but are not limited to) behavioral health challenges, substance abuse, challenging behaviors, complex medical needs, unstable housing or placement, lack of natural supports, history with APS and/ or history with the criminal justice system. This role will hold a smaller caseload than the average Case Manager at S&DS to ensure they have the dedicated time it will take to address clients with heightened needs and provide additional support as needed. Some case assignments will be long-term while other assignments will be short-term to address an acute need or to address a specific transition. For instance, a consumer may require complex case coordination during an eviction process to secure a safe and appropriate care-placement.
