Holistic and Family-Centered Case Management

We want to assist our most vulnerable clients and their families with their most immediate needs, but also assist and coach the served individuals and families to be self-sustainable and self-reliant. Instead of serving the client once, we will assess their needs in different dimensions (health, finance, education, housing, etc.), identify the most impactful interventions, make successful internal and external referrals, and, in partnership with the client, develop a long-term or short-term plan of care to overcome the barriers that leave them vulnerable.
Referrals (internal and/or external) will be successful if THEY ARE relevant and cohesive to the client’s plan of care.

Services:

  • Family-centered coaching
  • Direct financial assistance
  • Wrap-around services
  • Referrals to partner agencies
