  • Maximize an individual’s abilities and expanding their repertoire of life skills so they can live the life of their choosing, as independently as possible
  • Explore appropriate support services based on individual needs
  • Personalize goals for transitions
  • Build connections to community

  • Establish prevent and safety strategies

Implementation and Ongoing Support

We stay in touch with clients to ensure their plan is working by:

  • Providing both phone and in-person support
  • Setting and securing needed appointments

Reassess and Regroup

As part of care management, we reassess how our clients are responding and make necessary changes when required by:

  • Regularly reviewing and modifying the care plan
  • Tracking and recording progress
  • Insuring that evidence-based best practices are maintained

 

We are in challenging and unprecedented times. As we all navigate this new way of living and working together, one thing that remains constant is that JFCs is here for our clients and we are here for each other.

 

We are watching closely what our City, State and Federal government is saying and doing and translating that into what that means for us as an organization.

 

We are exploring ways to reach members of our community using the core competencies that we all have to alleviate stress and anxiety. We are communicating with many similar agencies across the country to learn more and better understand policies put forth from our Governor and the Federal government.

 

Many in the community want to help our clients and want to know what plans we have put in place to reach the most vulnerable.

 

You can be reassured we remain committed to providing the best care we can offer to all of our clients during these challenging times.

 

We continue to closely follow the community needs of the community we serve and how we address these ever changing needs.

 

JFCS is here for you and we will get through this together. Stay safe.
