Support, partnership, services



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

While all programs and services provided by Cathedral Center are critical components to ending homelessness, our Case Management program is a comprehensive service approach that intersects with all programs – providing continuity of care at every stage of service our clients are engaged in. Cathedral Center’s case management program envisions a community in which women and families with children are supported to effectively problem solve crises, have a healthy support system to partner with and be able to access and comfortably engage in needed services to remain stably and safely housed.

Cathedral Center Case Management Services begins with a comprehensive assessment, which serves to inform each person’s Individualized Plan for Independence or IPI.

This personal strategic plan is developed in partnership with clients and focuses on goals specific to increasing income, securing safe housing, and improving health and well-being. Services and action plans are built around the potential barriers to each goal, as well as building upon individual strengths to pursue goal attainment. Case Management services are provided for women and families with children who:

  • Are facing a housing crisis, but not yet homeless and want to avoid a homeless episode or need for shelter
  • Are guests in our emergency shelter program
  • Are guests in our emergency housing program
  • Are former guests of one of the above, who request continued support as they transition to independence
