Case Management

Do You Need Help Finding Work?

If you need more help than the resource room offers, case management may be a good fit for you.

There are two ways to start the case management process:

  1. Tell the receptionist that you would like a needs assessment
  2. Get recommended for case management. The resource room staff may ask you if you would like to apply

With case management, you and the case manager work together to find work or connect to the community.
