The Rescue Mission Case Management Team offers a wide variety of services to benefit guests at the Rescue Mission. Every recovery program participant, family shelter guest, men’s shelter guest, women’s shelter guest and respite guest is offered the service of Case Management.

The Case Management Team begins with an assessment of individual needs and then the Case Manager and the guest develop a plan together for success.


We Work with Local Agencies

Case managers work with local agencies such as

  • Housing Authority
  • Social Security Administration
  • Food Stamp Program
  • C.H.I.P. (Child Health Investment Partnership)
  • Veterans Affairs
  • DMV
  • Virginia Employment Commission
  • Blue Ridge Behavioral Healthcare
  • TLC (Transitional Living Center)
  • Refugee Assistance
  • Local Churches

The Case Manager refers guests to local agencies for intakes. Sometimes this involves transporting the guest to the appointment, following up with a representative from the other agency and helping the guest to navigate through the inevitable paperwork that some entitlement programs require. That quickly starts the plan into motion. Together with other local agencies, we assist guests with housing, employment, photo identification, money management, life skills, child care and other needs based on their individual plans. It is our goal to empower, motivate and assist our guests in the direction of fulfilling their goals to be self sufficient.
