Guidance, access to resources, and accountability are key components of success. Case management is the core of how our shelter program operates to provide these tools.
Our Case Management program provides the structure, guidance and support to help families address their needs. From changing destructive patterns to gaining new life skills, every family works weekly to rebuild their life to overcome homelessness. Case management is a highly individualized process in which residents work with a case manager in order to identify issues and obstacles and to develop a strategy for regaining wholeness and self-sufficiency. Open House Ministries’ families meet with their case managers on a weekly basis to evaluate progress. It is through case management that residents are referred to internal or external support programs designed to address specific needs and encourage ongoing progress.
Life Skills Management
OHM teaches residents healthy life behaviors through this individualized yet structured case management program that may include mental health and addiction counseling, family counseling, parenting classes, interpersonal relationship classes, decision making and financial management classes, as well as men and women’s support groups.
