Culturally diverse (including religion/spirituality), Gender Sensitive Treatment is an integral component of treatment, prevention, and mental health promotion.
Community Outreach Services
Often clients need additional assistance in reaching other community services in order to meet their basic living needs. A community service worker/case manager can assist people in finding services for income support, energy assistance applications, disability filings, vocational services, hearing aids and other community resources. Case managers visit families at home and assist them in assessing their strengths as well as needs. They can help with coordination with other services available at LCDN.
The goal of this program is to enhance a community’s ability to assess its problems and to promote its strengths in order to provide a healthy physical and emotional climate for its residents. It is our belief that such changes must come from the community itself, with LCDN being a partner in efforts that are within our mission statement.
