    At CUPS, we help Calgarians who are experiencing poverty and trauma get to the root causes of their challenges and change their lives. Using science as the foundation, people learn to manage adversity and build lifelong resilience that spans generations.

    Acting with ingenuity and collaboration, we transcend traditional social service & organizational management models to lead the way to integrated, responsive and scientifically tested standards of practice in all we do.

    The C2C Graduation Navigator is responsible for delivering trauma-informed care to clients with complex health and social needs. The Graduation Navigator works with C2C and Care Coordination, to assist clients who are ready to transition from intensive team supports to other case management supports or independence in community. The case management work focuses on enabling clients to obtain and maintain income, housing, social supports and improving health outcomes. The goal of this role is to support integrated care within CUPS and build the capacity of CUPS clients to achieve independence in the community.
