As a resident of L.F.S., you are required to meet with a Case Manager on a weekly basis. You will have an initial interview upon intake, after which you will be expected to meet with your Case Manager on a weekly basis. The purpose of this interview is to allow your Case Manager to get to know you better and to understand your unique situation. Your Case Manger will assist you in identifying those areas where you may need assistance and help you set up a plan to meet these needs and achieve your goals. It is our hope that you will make the most of your stay here and take full advantage of the resources provided through your Case Manager.
