Case Management

A Case Manager assesses each family’s strengths, weaknesses, and barriers to success and works to create a well-rounded Family Case Plan with goals and strategies to help families regain self-sufficiency. Case Managers connect families to partner agencies in the community for resources such as education completion, job training, financial literacy, parenting education, self-care, and the like.

A new primary goal is for Case Managers to develop a Housing Stabilization Plan with our families to emphasize that housing is the goal. The “Housing First” approach is well documented in literature as the gold-standard approach to supporting homeless children and their families, with families placed in housing as soon as feasible, supported with ongoing wrap-around services to keep them housed.
