How to write a cover letter for a housing case worker job
Cover letters should include major career achievements. (small house, big house image by Nino Pavisic from

A housing case worker's primary duty is to assist city residents obtain quality and affordable housing based on their income and family needs. They interview clients and give them certain forms to fill out in order to receive the housing they need. When preparing a cover letter for this job, you want to include your most significant achievements that will make you stand out from the competition.


  1. 1

    Talk about your leadership abilities. As a case worker you'll have to be organised and sometimes make decisions on the spot if your supervisor isn't around. You can discuss the time when as the coordinator of a local literacy centre you had to preside over a few staff meetings because the supervisor was out of town.

  2. 2

    Include your experience in non-profit work. Although a background in this area is not necessary to become a case worker, it is often beneficial for this type of work. For example, if you secured £500,000 in grants for the establishment of additional low-income apartments in your city as a grant writer for a local non-profit organisation, this should be in the letter.

  3. 3

    Proofread your letter. Ask friends, relatives or a professional proofreader to go over the letter for grammatical errors and inaccurate statements. This is important because the proper structure of English is a strength of your cover letter.
