Program participants are able to work one-on-one with a case manager to set and work towards reaching self-set goals that will put them on the path to self –reliance, supporting and providing safety for themselves and their families.
Our integrated case management efforts are focused on the following programs:
Homelessness Prevention & Intervention
Participants may stay at Carol’s House if fleeing domestic violence, others may stay at another County shelter or have access to emergency bridge housing in the form of motel vouchers and the Interfaith Shelter Network, a rotational shelter that houses participants in a variety of churches throughout the San Diego North County Coastal area for which CRC provides shelter coordination and case management services. Individuals and families who are in danger of losing their housing may also have access to rental assistance and housing stability resources through CRC.
Homeless individuals and families are provided with access to housing navigation assistance to connect them with the resources they need to secure permanent housing.
Please note this assistance is based on funding availability and is subject to certain eligibility requirements.
Participants have access to transportation and employment readiness resources and coaching as well as benefits enrollment assistance, financial literacy training and budgeting and money management education.
Health & Wellbeing
CRC’s Food and Nutrition programming consists of multiple programs focused on ensuring that households experiencing food insecurity have access to nutritious emergency food resources, as well as on-going food assistance. CRC also partners with a number of local health focused agencies to provide screenings, health resources and wellness education in an effort to support participants’ overall wellness goals.
VITA Tax Program
VITA allows CRC the ability to assist low-income families and individuals to receive free income tax preparation on-site.
CRC IMPACT: In 2015, CRC’s VITA program was successful in completing 791 returns and returning $1,149,044.00 in total tax refunds, to individuals in our community- including the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC).
