Our goal

Case Management services are available to client’s 7-days per week for one-on-one assistance.  The Case Management Team completes an assessment with clients to identify their needs, strengths, and weaknesses, and then develops individualized plans of service that outlines each client’s individualized goals while considering their access to resources. The residents of the Empowerment Program are provided with safe and healthy living accommodations, clothing and hygiene items, and referrals to counseling and mental health agencies.

REP provides employment services leading resident’s reintegration into mainstream society and self-sufficiency by securing employment. The individuals work towards self-sufficiency within a parameter of a policy and regulation guided program.
