Jason Lavalle

Case Manager

Jason was working towards an Addiction Counselor Education (ACE) degree when a friend told him about Jeremiah’s Inn. Jason started in a per diem position but soon became the weekend/overnight Case Manager. In January 2014, he became a full time Case Manager. “When I first started working,” he said, “I thought I was going to help everybody; soon I realized that this job comes with a lot of failure. There will be relapses no matter how much you try.” What drives him, he says, is knowing that what he does saves the lives of those who may not have had the chance otherwise. Jason believes that he is good at his job because of the experiential knowledge he has. He believes it allows him to provide guidance for the guys at the Inn.
