Conference: Evaluating Case Management for Vulnerable Populations


The Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities (LEO) at the University of Notre Dame and Catholic Charities Fort Worth are hosting a conference on wrap-around case management. The conference, titled “Evaluating Case Management for Vulnerable Populations,” will be held November 30 - December 1 on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. The purpose of the conference is to bring together service providers running effective case-management programs and researchers interested in innovative case management and program evaluation.

Wrap-around case management will be discussed in regards to the following contexts and subject areas: foster care, refugees, two-generation, employer based, veterans, school based, and government assistance programs. The current state of knowledge of case management and the work of social service providers will be presented, with the goal of highlighting possible policy responses in each context.
