Community Case Management

For emergency services or case management, please call 211 or from cell phones, call 414.773.0211.

The Cathedral Center’s community case management program provides a much-needed preventive service to women and families not currently existing in most shelters due to lack of public funding and support.

Entirely funded by private sources, programmatic constraints would render prevention services ineffective if funded by federal sources. As such, this program’s success is strictly limited to the amount of case management time that can be directly invested in client services.

The success of prevention services was clearly demonstrated in the household of three adults and ten children who were assisted by staff members to avoid the need for emergency shelter on two separate occasions over a 14 month period. Due to a recent fire in this family’s home, the grandmother, mother and several children are now living in one of our family shelter rooms while awaiting new housing.

OUTCOMES:

In 2015

19
women

36
families

who resided in the community were
assisted in avoiding a shelter
stay altogether.

Our community case management program has been identified as a best practice in Milwaukee County Continuum of Care’s 2015 and 2016 annual submission to HUD.

Our program is described as a proven effective strategy for
reducing the demand for emergency shelters and homelessness
in Milwaukee,
while also being one of the most under-funded of successful programs.
