Navigation

Resource and Service Navigation identifies and develops resources and services that help individuals and families meet their basic needs through developing viable customized service plans focused on family strengths and community supports so they may achieve stability.

WHAT WE DO

  • Develop goals and action steps which are likely to achieve the intended result of the plan
  • Organize and actively case manage service plans
  • Work with communities, agencies and other department programs to develop or assist in the stabilization of assets and resources
