In July 2020, CCCNMO established our Hispanic Case Management Program in response to increasing demand for assistance from the Hispanic community, which is disproportionately impacted by poverty and COVID-19 and often faces linguistic and eligibility barriers to accessing services.
The program is focused on homelessness prevention, and integrates rent/mortgage assistance and case management to provide immediate relief and supports for long-term recovery. The Hispanic Resource Coordinator provides culturally and linguistically responsive client-centered case management to decrease barriers to access, increase self-sufficiency, and promote physical and emotional wellness. Clients develop a Recovery Plan in collaboration with the Hispanic Resource Coordinator, outlining a case management plan to connect to services and resources. The program also offers rent and mortgage assistance, prioritizing cases to prevent eviction, foreclosure, and homelessness.
