United Communities Southeast Philadelphia’s Case Management programs, conducted primarily in the home, are offered free of charge to families in their designated service areas. Case Managers connect families with community resources to meet a variety of goals through making referrals and linkages.
Family Empowerment Services (FES)
The Family Empowerment Services Program is a voluntary program that strives to increase family stability and well being. Referrals are accepted through the Department of Human Services or by way of self referral directly to United Communities. Currently, our program serves families residing in South Philadelphia, Center City, North Philadelphia, and Northeast Philadelphia neighborhoods.
Truancy Prevention Case Management
The Truancy Prevention Program focuses both on improving the communication between students, families, and schools and removing the barriers to attendance for students who have accrued excessive school absences. Referrals are made directly by partner schools which are located in various neighborhoods of South Philadelphia, Center City, and North Philadelphia.
Tier One Truancy Prevention
The Tier One Truancy Prevention Program, in collaboration with the School District of Philadelphia, provides outreach to families of students that are at moderate to high risk for truancy. The primary goals of this program are to decrease the number and percentage of children who are referred to Truancy Court and to encourage the involvement of parents or caregivers in supporting the educational achievements of their children.
