Community-Based Case Management
Supporting those experiencing acute mental illness and housing instability.”
What is it?
Access Services Community Based Care Management program works with individuals experiencing acute mental illness to secure stable permanent housing. Working in partnership with other community stakeholders, this pilot program assists individuals with unsecure housing transition from a hospital stay to independent living in the community. Our team works directly with individuals to identify housing that meets their needs and assists them with securing these units.
Additionally, our team works with clients to strengthen their connection to other community resources. Once housed, clients are provided ongoing housing stability support and assistance with developing and maintaining a plan toward being able to maintain their housing independently.
