About the Helen Wright Center

Emergency Shelter

Helen Wright Program

The Helen Wright Center for Women’s program provides more than housing assistance. With a focus on the establishment of well-defined goals and objectives, women are offered an opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness and achieve self-sufficiency through intensive case management services.

The basic components of case management include intake, assessment of needs, service planning, linkage to services, continuous monitoring, and client advocacy. In addition to increasing access to medical and psycho-social services, case management can also include crisis intervention, discharge planning and direct services such as emotional support, client education, and skill building.
