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 managers provide structure, guidance and support to help families address their needs. From changing destructive patterns to gaining new life skills, every family works to rebuild their lives and overcome homelessness.
Case management is a highly individualized process. Residents work with a case manager to identify issues and obstacles and 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.
Managing life skills
Open House Ministries teaches residents healthy life behaviors through this individualized, structured case management program. Individual plans can 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.
