Community Resources

​​​​​​Community Coordinators provide direct support to the local DCS sites.  They work within their assigned circuit to develop and maintain relationships with service providers and resources.  Community Coordinator also assists with hand on case management of high needs cases. Referring individuals to housing, employment, mentoring resources when identified as a need.   

Community Coordinators utilize data from assessments to identify the resources needed for returning citizens.  This data is incorporated into comprehensive plans which guides the work executed daily by the Community Coordinators. Two major functions of community coordination include: Capacity building and direct linkage.  Capacity building refers to increasing identified service providers that are willing to work with our target population. Coordinators often get involved directly with cases to ensure proper service connection. 
 
In addition to building capacity and providing direct linkage to local resources, Community Coordinators also lead local steering teams.  Steering teams consist of provider representing a wide array of specialty areas.  These teams meet regularly to discuss ways to overcome barriers and service gaps.
