Case Management: essential services that provide self-sufficiency and hope. SACA’s overall goal is always to help increase individual and family self-sufficiency, financial stability and quality of life.
SACA case managers are often the first point-of-entry for government and public health services. They help clients assess their current situation and figure out what to do next. They often help determine eligibility for life-saving benefits like food stamps, social security, supplemental security income (SSI), Medicaid and welfare and they may help clients get ready for important applications by organizing needed paperwork and documents. Case managers refer clients to health care facilities, HIV/AIDS testing, employment services, and help with mental health or substance abuse problems. They give emotional support and encouragement and, most important, they help create an individualized progress plan that can be implemented and monitored over time.
