CARE Management

For total access to the CARE program resources, the student must be actively working with a case manager. Together, the student and case manager will develop an individualized plan intended to empower the student to work towards their daily living needs. The case manager may provide students with resources, referrals, and additional life skills to enable the student’s self-sufficiency.

Case management may provide one or more of the following:

Progress Monitoring

  • Develop and implement treatment plans based on client needs
  • Meet periodically to assess and adapt treatment plan as needed

Coaching

  • Provide direction
  • Encouragement and motivation

Advocacy

  • Campaign on behalf of the student and their path towards self-sufficiency

Referrals

  • Refer clients to community resources or to specialists as necessary, both on and off campus

Financial Assistance

  • Finding employment opportunities both on and off campus
  • Locating benevolent organizations in the community to offer services to students who may not be able to afford them (i.e. childcare or care maintenance, etc.)
  • Assisting students in applying for university and community-based grants and / or scholarships
  • Work with the Office of Student Financial Aid to determine if student is connected to all available resources
