Mrs. Kimberly Hearwood – BVHS Case Manager & Mr. Damon Brathwaite – Case Manager Assistant
All residents/clients are assigned a Case Manager within 20 minutes for assessment, evaluation and creation of a mutually agreed upon personalized case plan.
During the first meeting, a comprehensive assessment helps to identify barriers to housing stability and aids in the formation of a mutually agreed upon course of action and set of goals. In some cases, the case manager simply connects the residents/clients to already available resources that will quickly transition them to permanent or transitional housing. Other cases require intensive involvement by both the case manager and the residents/clients particularly where medical issues, substance abuse, and/or mental health problems are creating barriers to success.
