Wraparound Services Team: Chelsea Dare, Michelle Blau, Ebony Martin, Stephanie Rehor, Michael King, & Tiffani Gardner

Housing Forward is always working to ensure our services meet the complex needs of the individuals and families we assist. To that goal, we have established a team of specialists and case workers in our brand-new Wraparound Services Program! 

What is the Wraparound Services Program? 

Wraparound Services is our approach to personalized services that will strengthen our ability to support our clients in building long-term stability and improved quality of life. 

Why create the Wraparound Services Program? 

It’s rare that homelessness and housing crisis are solely housing issues exclusively. Most often, they stem from a variety of factors, including mental health, domestic violence, substance use, financial crisis, employment instability/unemployment, and others. Housing alone does not resolve the situation. If the issues that resulted in the housing crisis are left unaddressed, it’s likely they’ll recur and undermine longer-term housing stability.  

Who makes up the team? 

Housing Forward’s Wraparound Services team includes a variety of specialists and case managers who support clients in addressing a variety of challenges and issues.  

  • Behavioral Health Specialists: provide support for mental and behavioral health needs 
  • Community Health Nurse: provides direct care, referrals, and resources for clients’ primary healthcare needs 
  • Community Case Managers: focus on long-term needs of those transitioning to more independent housing 
  • SOAR Case Managers: provide case management for those who are using social security disability benefits 
  • Family Support Specialists: provide support for parents and families exiting homelessness 
  • Employment Specialists: provide employment readiness and career passport services 
  • Client Assessor: provides centralized client intake at Housing Forward 
  • Data Specialist: collates & analyzes program data 

We are elated to provide services that help people thrive in our community and take back control of their futures.
