Post Adoption Case Management and Service Planning
All families receiving post adoption and post permanency support services through Arms Wide Adoption Services will have an individual caseworker. Arms Wide caseworkers are responsible for verifying program eligibility and developing an individualized service plan based on the adopted child’s current functioning, and the needs of all the family members as they relate to the child’s presence in the home.
The caseworker first meets with and establishes a personalized service plan with each family. Service plans are reviewed and updated with a preference for face to face meetings with each family every six months, or more frequently as needed. Due to the complex nature of the services needed, Arms Wide’s experienced caseworkers build solid, long-term relationships with families and support them to ensure the success of the placement and the well-being of their families.
Case management services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They include the following:
- Bilingual services offered in both English and Spanish
- Education regarding permanency issues and topics
- Counseling with families about available support services
- Client referrals to appropriate community resources
- Participating in meetings with other agencies working with a child or family
- Aiding families in seeking third-party financial resources
