Case Management:
Mission House clients work one-on-one with the case managers to develop a program planned to restore their independence.  Services for active clients include: obtaining identification, sources of income, housing, substance abuse referrals, medical assistance through our clinic, bus passes for jobs or doctor appointments, and clothing vouchers for interview/job clothing.
