What is Resource Coordination?
Resource Coordination services are provided in 1-hour increments in person or over the phone, using a solutions-focused therapeutic approach. During these one-on-one sessions, the Resource Coordinator is able to help clients address the practical needs of employment and housing while simultaneously equipping the client with coping and resiliency skills. This therapeutic approach allows for WRC staff to gain a more holistic assessment of each client’s strengths and needs, identify issues of abuse, mental health, or substance abuse, determine appropriate referrals, and assist the client in developing and implementing a comprehensive action plan.
Resource Coordination is a unique blend of counseling and case management services that typically runs up to 12 sessions depending on the client’s needs. Clients requiring more than twelve sessions may be referred to another agency or provider for ongoing counseling.
How much does it cost?
This service is free for very low income clients. Other fees are set based on income and number of dependents.
Who can use Resource Coordination?
Any woman who needs help navigating social services, identifying external resources, and developing the internal resources needed to successfully navigate a transition in life. For example:
- A middle aged woman who quit her job due to stress and medical issues, but now needs help planning her path.
- A single mom facing eviction.
- A married woman who feels stuck because her husband has been controlling the family finances.
- A college student who wants her parents to see her as an adult, but still needs help navigating the complicated relationships and pressures of college life.
