The goal of our case management engagement with Hurricane Katrina evacuee households is to facilitate their access to all resources necessary to resotr their households to their maximum level of potential and self-sufficiency. This includes permanent housing in the community where they choose to reside (pre-Katrina or destination city). This is to be done through extensive case management engagement with case managed households, by consorting with other Katrina Aid Today consortium member agencies and Long Term Recovery Committees (LTRCs), and carried out through professional social workers and qualified case managers.
Through the Katrina Aid Today program, The Salvation Army will provide professional and volunteer-based case management services to households who experienced substantial damage or total destruction to their housing; loss or reduction in household income due to job and benefit loss; or psychosocial trauma as a direct result of Hurricane Katrina. The case management process will build upon the existing case work services being provided by The Salvation Army in response to Katrina; utilizing the existing organizational capacities and systems. The Salvation Army will partner with the National Case Management Consortium; continuously networking with other government and non-government organizations to minimize duplication, thus maximizing resources and ensuring the most effcient service provision for those needing assistance.
