Our Continuing Care Coordinator provides proactive continuing care
to previous residents of Open Door Shelter - West Town and helps them make a successful transition
to their next living situation. The Coordinator also sets up transition planning meetings with
each resident and his/her Case Manager prior to discharge and makes follow-up
visits to assess client needs; distribute supplies and make referrals as needed.
Additionally, the Coordinator works with our Youth Outreach Team at youth outreach events, and co-leads
H.E.L. L. O. (Homeless Experts Living Life's Obstacles), a youth activism group which meets Tuesday nights at the Broadway Youth Center.
The activism group focuses on helping homeless and formerly homeless youth find their
voices and speak out on their own behalf.
