Family Development Case Management

Family Development Case Management is a model of service provision developed over several years at MMCA.  Its elements include a focus on the entire family with a flexible definition of  “family.”  The model is strength-based and family-focused and encourages  teamwork between family, agency, and community resources.  It includes an assessment for measuring levels of risk in fifteen life areas and promotes problem-solving skills that identify and eliminate barriers to self-sufficiency.

The Family Development model includes a comprehensive range of activities to assist participating families to achieve self-sufficiency goals through coordinated access to community services and on-going case management support.

MMCA also provides case management services to help seniors live independently in their homes.  Following a survey and assessment of needs, case managers help seniors to identify and access services, build natural supports, and develop resources to maintain independent living and vital participation in their communities.
