A Day in the Life of a Case Manager:

Our Case Managers support children age birth to 7 years and their families. The Case Manager begins their services by developing a comprehensive and individual plan of care for each of their assigned clients. The Case Manager then provides case management services based off of their client's identified needs. The highlight of a Case Manager's day is when a client and their family are able to overcome a barrier.

  • Assistance with building family relationships and secure attachment in cases where this may have been interrupted
  • Collaborating with other community agencies
