There are many reasons why a client may be contacting your organization, from needing to leave a harmful home situation to not being able to afford their monthly housing payment to losing their property in a disaster. As an HMIS provider, you may have clients contact you directly, or you may intake referral clients who were seeking other services. Homeless management cases aren’t exclusive to one service area or need, so we believe you should be able to connect them to every other service you provide—and ultimately, shine hope in tough situations. Because CaseWorthy is a client-focused solution, it allows you to see case management in a different way: as a big picture with many details rather than a set of siloed services.
Our home services are structured in such a way that they can be integrated into every other part of your workload—HUD, HMIS and SPDAT functionality included. This makes it much easier to meet your clients’ needs holistically and create a plan that covers every care scenario.
You want to be able to provide the best possible housing services for your clients, whatever that might mean for them. With CaseWorthy, there’s “no wrong door.”
Helping someone find the right housing solution for them can encompass many different services. You could be providing long-term apartment housing, temporary home housing, secure shelter housing or even home-building services. Whatever the case may be, CaseWorthy is a system that can keep track of every detail of the project.
- Bed management: Determine where a client should be sent for housing services, with real-time data showing where beds are available, where more or less are needed and the extent of the client’s stay.
- Demographics: Input and keep track of a client’s personal information in order to best determine how to house them and other ways to serve them beyond that.
- Emergency shelter: Some clients will need housing due to a major crisis in their life. Not only will CaseWorthy make finding them an emergency place to live easy, but it will also simplify the process of helping them get back on their feet.
- Housing Counseling: If a client needs help finding a long-term home to rent or buy, you can walk them through the process step-by-step in order to empower them to make the right decisions for their needs.
- Weatherization: Helping a client with housing services may also include helping repair or renovate their existing home. CaseWorthy offers ways to track weatherization services and ensure that your client’s four walls and roof are safe and weather-protected.
- Full support with other services: CaseWorthy’s housing management system integrates into many other services to create the maximum benefit for your clients, including domestic violence/IPV, homelessness, foster care, disaster recovery, behavioral health and more.
