“Working at Christian Care has been a joy since I started in July.  I truly enjoy interacting with all of our clients on a day to day basis and the opportunity to build relationships with them.  Getting to sit down and work with clients on the challenges they encounter and be a part of the problem solving process makes the work we all do very fulfilling. “ – Melody Williams


At the core of Christian Care’s mission is our Case Management Program.  We believe in a holistic and trauma informed care approach and seek to provide services which emphasize safety, trust, choice, collaboration and empowerment.  By addressing basic needs first, residents are better able to identify barriers and create a plan of coordinated services tailored to suit individual needs.  Residents are given access to resources and referrals they may otherwise not have had access to and are encouraged to take advantage of self improvement opportunities provided by Christian Care such as meditation, spiritual guidance and life skills workshops. Residents work one-on-one with Case Advocates to address all facets of their lives and are exposed to tools necessary to become independent and self-sustaining.

 

Veterans from Christian Care had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with Sundance for Our Soldiers (SOS). SOS is a non-profit orgnaization that offers a unique innovative approach to personal growth and learning for soldiers of all ages and their families. Horses in their natural environment have the innate ability to mirror what they see. The non-verbal communication from the horses helps become a catalyst for self-discovery and personal growth. Thank you so much for giving our veterans this opportunity!
