Case Management and Social Services

Our Case Management programs respond to issues that adversely affect the quality of life, health, and well-being of adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities, chronic mental illness, and age-related disabilities, including a special population of aging adults identified as Russian immigrants. We offer support services that increase levels of independence, personal safety, and stability.

Our Community Resource Program is the cornerstone of a supportive housing model to benefit seniors, individuals with disabilities, chronic mental health problems, chronic health conditions, and families with low household incomes in a safe and affordable housing environment.

Our program provides free educational, social engagement and social service programs to promote inclusion, personal safety, wellness and housing stability for nearly 350 residents living at Deerwood Crossing Senior Residences and Bradley Crossing in the village of Brown Deer.

Personalized services for individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities and chronic mental illness focuses on collaborative, client-centered treatment planning, independent living skills, financial support, and assistance with decision-making through corporate guardianship, if needed. Case managers provide representative payee and conservatorship services to help clients with low household incomes manage their limited resources (61% of these clients live on $9,999 or less per year). We also provide extensive socialization programming to help clients reduce personal isolation and overcome the public stigma associated with having a disability by forming relationships and a sense of community with others.
