After many years personal anguish, shame, mental torment, and much therapy Aliza gathered the courage to speak out and take her story to the masses.

Description of Services:
Casey Family Programs is the nation’s largest operating foundation focused on safely reducing the need for foster care and building Communities of Hope for children and families across America. Our mission is to provide and improve — and ultimately prevent the need for — foster care.

We provide foster care and other direct services to 1,100 children and families through community-based offices in nine locations. We share what we learn with child welfare systems, tribes, courts, private providers and community partners.

We are committed to 2020:
Building Communities of Hope, a nationwide effort to improve the safety and success of children and their families. We work in support of a range of public, private, tribal and community partners to: Safely reduce the need for foster care 50 percent by the year 2020. We partner with child welfare systems, families, policymakers, courts and American Indian tribes to support practices and policies that safely reduce the need for foster care, increase the safety and success of children and strengthen the resilience of families. Demonstrate how every child can have a safe and permanent family. We provide direct services with the goal that no child in our care will age out of the foster care system without a safe, loving family of his or her own. Through this work, we seek to influence improvements in life outcomes, especially in the areas of education, mental health and employment. Support more effective investments in children and families. We contribute nonpartisan information, data and resources to help public officials make more effective investments — and reinvestments — in children and families. Encourage a shared vision for success. We encourage community leaders to think, plan and act collectively to improve the long-term safety and success of children and their families.

We’ll spend 6-12 weeks empowering you with the tools and skills you need to work through tough times. Long-Term Therapy: Maybe your situation requires more time. Long-term therapy may be better suited for solving more complicated issues. Mood Disorder Counseling: About 1 in 4 Americans suffers from a mood disorder. Our professional staff is specially trained in the diagnosis and treatment of mood disorders. We offer individual, couple, family, and group therapy, as mood disorders often affect entire families, not just the person suffering. Join our Mood Disorder Support Group and meet others who really understand what you are going through.

Military Case Management (Jewish Family Service)

Details

Like civilians, military families are subject to crises such as financial struggles, depression, serious illness, divorce, and stressful parenting situations.

Description of Services:
Like civilians, military families are subject to crises such as financial struggles, depression, serious illness, divorce, and stressful parenting situations. When added to the already difficult lifestyle of military personnel (that often includes family separation during deployments and relocation away from loved ones and friends), these problems can become too challenging to manage alone.

Jewish Family Service is dedicated to providing support to low-income, active duty military personnel and their families. Our professional case managers conduct needs assessments and refer families to appropriate resources both within JFS and out in the community. We also provide limited emergency financial assistance.

Jewish Family Service recognizes the sacrifices of our military families and we are committed to helping you during your time of need.

Additional Information:
Military Case Management services include assistance with: basic necessities, such as food, clothing, and shelter; transportation; specialized mental health and counseling referrals; daily coping skills; advocacy; budgeting; intervention in the midst of a crisis; public benefits; and referrals for professional services and community resources based on your specific situation.
