Intensive Case Management

Intensive Case Management

Case Management Services

Our case managers help individuals and families prioritize their most urgent needs as a result of a crisis such as fire, flood, family violence, and loss of income.

In the case of a more chronic situation, the Case Manager will provide referrals for job counseling, continued education, referrals to behavioral health services and family support services. Each plan of action is tailored to enhance the clients' use of services and to restore or maintain greater independent functioning to the fullest extent possible.

Mother's Milk Bank

A milk bank collects breast milk from mothers who have more than their babies need.  They  then send the milk to Mother’s Milk Bank North East who screens, pasteurizes, and tests the milk, after which it is dispensed primarily to premature and sick babies whose mothers do not have enough milk for them.

THANK YOU TO OUR SUPPORTERS!!!

Without the support of our sponsors and supporters, we could not provide the baby clothes and cribs that new mothers receive through this wonderful program.

Norwich Council of Catholic Women has been supporting women in need since the council founded Catholic Charities Diocese of Norwich in 1921. The group's dedicated support helps clothe newborns, care for mothers, and create the best scenario possible for some of our most vulnerable neighbors. The group hosts an annual Baby Layette that generates many of the clothes and diapers Catholic Charities gives out to new mothers.
