We begin this process by building a relationship with the customer. Assessing the customer’s strengths, challenges and resources. Setting achievable steps and create a plan for them to reach their goals. Supporting the customers by discussing the barriers that may prevent them from being successful. Lastly, connecting customers to their community by providing referrals and maintaining a relationship with the family during this process.
