  • The Case Manager will conduct a needs assessment with the PALS/family to determine how the Chapter can assist them, as well as collaborate with other agencies that may be able to provide assistance.
  • Upon completing the needs assessment, the Case Manager together with the PALS/family will create a case management plan, outlining the issues that need to be addressed.
  • The Case Manager and the PALS/family will work together to solve the problems outlined in the case management plan.

 If you have not been assigned a Case Manager, please call 818-540-4252.
