We work directly with survivors and significant others to ensure that their immediate and long-term health, housing, financial, and safety needs are being met. This includes providing information and comprehensive support to survivors in accessing health insurance, housing funds, emergency shelter, affordable housing, victim compensation, public benefits, and more.
The Case Management team also advocates for policy changes that further economic justice for survivors. In addition, they train housing and homeless shelter providers to improve their knowledge and skills in working with and supporting survivors of sexual violence.
BARCC's Case Management services are free and confidential to people ages 12 and older. All services are available in English and Spanish, with other languages, including ASL, available with prior notice. Reasonable accommodations will be provided.
What a case manager can do for you
After a sexual assault, many parts of life can feel chaotic and disrupted. With case management services, we can help you get back on track. Our case managers can assist you with questions about the following:
- Finances: We can tell you about financial resources that may help pay for current and future expenses such as medical bills, child care expenses, therapy bills, lost wages, tuition, utility bills, rent, and moving expenses.
- Health insurance: We can work with you to access affordable, comprehensive insurance coverage.
