Case management is an important tool in the effort to help people walk out of poverty. SFCS has a staff of professional, seasoned, well-trained case managers who sometimes spend years working with individual families.
Case managers assist their clients in visualizing the future, identifying barriers to personal goals, and then acting to achieve life ambitions.
Many clients strive to improve their education, get a job that pays a living wage, find better housing, reduce debt, enhance parenting skills and/or live within a realistic budget.
Home visits are a staple of case management. Case managers visit a client at home to better understand living conditions and build a bond of trust. Keeping apprised of community resources, case managers also help their clients tap into needed benefits and services.
