  Service Profile:
Service/program name: Case Management Services
Description: There are three programs used to promote healthy families. The first program involves family case management. This program provides a family with a case manager that will visit weekly or biweekly at first. This case manager will assess your family's needs whether the need involves the entire family or a few. The case manager can help with or provide resources for counseling, food assistance, completing applications for entitlements (e.g. public aid), attending interviews (e.g. with public aid, Social Security, and others), and in some cases transportation. Case managers also help with counseling children and parents. This can occur in the comfort of your home. And the best part is that it is at no cost to you. Yes, it's FREE.

Service/program name: Parent Education
Description: The Pacific Institute
The Families Forever program is associated with the Pacific Institute. The Pacific Institute offers seminars that work specifically with parents.

Parents Night Out
We also have a program called Parents Night Out (PNO). PNO is fun for the entire family. For the adults, a speaker presents on such topics as doing taxes, legal advice, cooking creatively, and more. The parents are given $10.00 each to go out afterwards while the children between the ages of 4 and 10 play games, eat pizza, and watch movies. Best of all, it's FREE.
