A dedicated CCS case manager works with each individual enrolled in the ARISE program. Shelter residents meet with the case manager to complete a needs assessment and develop individualized action plans. Based on the individual's need, men are connected to community resources such as housing, education, employment, medical and mental health services, veteran's services, chemical dependency and life skills services, such as basic budgeting and coping.
With healing and growth, an individual is better prepared to hold steady employment, successfully maintain housing and restore healthy relationships. In order to achieve this level of stability, connecting to positive community supports is encouraged. Family, community, faith-based programs, mentor ships, peer groups and cultural communities all serve as support systems for these men. Also runs the HOME program from this location.
