Case Management

Case Management functions as a resource for girls and families involved in our center-based and outreach programs. It increases girls’ abilities to effectively overcome personal challenges by providing a safe environment and onsite adult support. It also increases parents’ awareness of and accessibility to community resources.

Through Case Management we refer families in crisis to other United Way and government agencies that provide emergency support. By facilitating relationships with The Department of Human Resources, The Rape Crisis Center, the Birmingham Division of Youth Services, and others, we ensure that our members receive the best care possible, particularly during tough times.

Contact our Case Manager, Tiara King, if you would like more information about our Case Management services.
