Program Description
The Resident Services (RS) Program is a voluntary program and functions as a case management/counseling component and community resource liaison to establish opportunities for residents to improve their present situations and work towards self-sufficiency. When a resident moves into the complex, staff provides orientation to the RS program and encourages the resident to participate. During the initial orientation, an assessment is given to the resident which identifies the needs of the individuals/family. From the assessment, staff members are able to provide services and referrals to the resident through partnering with local agencies and organizations within the community to enhance the quality of life for the resident and their family. The primary goal of services is eviction prevention—to help residents keep their homes in partnership with property management. Our other primary goal is to implement creative programs and services to enhance the quality of life for the resident and their family. To further participation, regular resident meetings are held.
