Case-Management Programming:

Clients with more complex needs may participate in our comprehensive case-management programming. A case manager will work in partnership with clients to create short and long-term goals and work towards their achievement. We also offer mental health support services. We often refer clients to partners and local community resources that have the specializations needed to most effectively meet our clients’ needs. We seek to continue to provide a safe environment where clients can feel they have a home away from home. Our ultimate goal is to encourage clients to form long- lasting connections to the larger Louisville community.
