There are many obstacles that victims have to overcome before they can be truly FREE of domestic violence. The WCA Bachelor's level case managers and interns provide assistance to victims as they work towards overcoming these obstacles.
Case managers link clients with community resources such as:
- Health care services (e.g. Medicaid)
- Food banks
- Children's services
They also teach life skills classes, help clients learn to budget, write resumes, fix nutritious meals on a budget and be assertive in asking for help. For clients who are involved with Child Protective Services or have probation officers, the case managers assist with plan coordination to reduce barriers to clients' successes.
Case managers also help facilitate some of the Group Sessions and Safety Planning programs offered to residential clients.
