Case Management services are provided to the program participants by national CERI staff who have obtained a degree (Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree) in social work.
Initial and subsequent assessments are facilitated by CERI case managers. Results from these assessments are incorporated into a risk level determination that triggers service planning and a set of formal interventions delivered by the case manager or other professionals. Interventions include:
- Referrals to receive medical treatment
- Supplies to support basic needs
- Fulfilling emergency needs (shelter, food, clothing, transportation)
Monthly case reviews are conducted by the National Program Director to ensure that children and families receive all needed services.
