Just In Case – Single Session Case Management
When: Throughout the week from 2:00-4:00pm on a first come, first served basis.
What: Just In Case is a single session case management meeting for up to 30-minutes to provide you with information on community resources and referrals and assist with service navigation. You must be registered with Friends of Ruby to access this program. Our case workers can connect you with information related to housing, income support, ID’s, healthcare, employment, and more. This may include a follow-up; however, these sessions are not intended for ongoing case management. If an issue is identified that needs ongoing support, you will be invited to an intake appointment to be placed on our internal ongoing case management waitlist.
