JFSRI’s Case Management Program is designed to support individuals and families who need financial assistance, guidance in accessing social and other services, and/or help in figuring out next steps to manage new or developing challenges.
Case management services are available to the general community, regardless of religious affiliation.
The Case Management Program connects those who need help with counseling services, home care, food assistance, and other forms of aid. Our trained social workers will assess needs, provide information and referrals, and, in some cases, offer direct help through JFSRI’s emergency financial assistance program.
Following are just two of many examples of the types of clients the Case Management Program has helped:
- “Larry” was struggling with depression on top of multiple other stressors, including unemployment and loss of health insurance. A referral to JFSRI’s Counseling Center let him meet with one of our licensed mental health clinicians for a reduced fee that he could afford.
- The out-of-town children of “Stan,” an elderly man living on his own, worried that he could not afford to pay for services to keep him safe at home. They called JFSRI and a case manager made an assessment, referred Stan to state-subsidized programs, and helped him through the application process to receive services. The case manager was also able to coordinate in-home services through JFSRI’s Home Care Solutions and Lifeline RI programs.
If you or someone you know in the community is in need of help, or if you would like to support this essential program, please contact Julie Herzlinger, LCSW, at 401-331-1244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
