Integrated Case Management

Integrated Case Management

The Case Management Team are Social Workers who work to provide youth-focused, coordinated and all-encompassing services to youth. Covenant House Vancouver takes a trauma-informed approach to caring for our young people. Trauma-informed care involves understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of all types of trauma. Trauma-informed care also emphasizes physical, psychological and emotional safety and helps youth rebuild a sense of control and empowerment.

Our Social Workers seek to focus and build upon the unique gifts and strengths that our young people possess.

Integrated Case Management may include:

  • Assessments of over-all health (mental, physical and spiritual)
  • Creation and implementation of weekly case plans
  • Short- and long-term goal setting
  • Referrals to and coordination of specialized services like psychiatrists and other medical professionals

Our process is based on the following principles:

  • Youth-centered services
  • Cultivating relationships of trust and mutual respect
  • Realistic plans
  • Youth participation and self-determination
  • A holistic approach that addresses physical, mental, social, and spiritual health
  • An ease of transition between programs along a continuum of care
  • Advocacy
  • Focusing on resilience
  • Celebration of diversity
  • Collaboration and team work
  • Accountability and responsibility
