Here’s what case management means at Miriam’s Kitchen:
Choice is an essential component of our case management. We don’t force services upon our guests. While we may suggest services that we think would be beneficial, our guests are free to choose when and how they receive support from us. This approach works because it is rooted in trust. Our guests choose their goals, and we help them achieve them.
And why is case management so important?
Our Case Management Program provides our guests with the services they need to survive while homeless. But it also gives us the insight on what works best to help get people off the streets.
With that insight, we’re not only in the best position to help our guests transition from a life on the streets to a new life in housing, we’re in the position to lead a charge to end chronic homelessness in Washington, D.C.
How can you help?
Join us for a day! The best way to understand the power of case management is to volunteer with our case managers, whether for an hour or for a monthly shift. We’d love for you to join us to experience our work firsthand and hope you’ll consider sending us an email to set up a visit.
