At HOPE South Florida, case management is where holistic help for the homeless begins.
All clients are assigned to a case manager within 48 hours after screening. During the first meeting, a comprehensive assessment is done to help identify barriers and challenges the family or individual is facing. The case manager will create a plan and follow up to track progress in one-on-one weekly or monthly meetings.
The family or individual is immediately connected to our in-house housing specialist who works alongside the case manager to ensure that suitable and affordable housing is secured as soon as possible. In some cases, the case manager connects the client to readily available resources that will quickly provide the assistance needed to address any barriers hindering the family or individual from pursuing permanent housing and employment.
