Stoughton Area Resource Team (START) - 2015 Amount Funded: $5,000.00
START builds a focused case management program for households engaged in eviction prevention. The service plan or “plan” is the tool that is used to overcoming barriers and achieving stability, and reaching intended goals. Case management includes a detailed assessment and plan that always includes steps for immediate stabilization. The plan that is developed includes both immediate and long term action steps and goals along with resources that would be helpful in goal achievement. A plan to prevent eviction and stabilize future housing includes a rent budget and often involves connecting with the landlord. Employment, transportation, and health are all possible issues that may present over time as barriers to achieving stability and meeting goals. The plan is then modified and updated as needed with input from the client.
The START Program provides case management services and financial assistance in the following areas of need: 1.) Housing - advocacy, referrals for transitional programs, security deposits, eviction prevention assistance, mortgage assistance, housing counseling and mediation, and budget counseling. 2.) Utility assistance - work with area agencies and the Stoughton Utility company to seek collaborative efforts to prevent disconnections and financial assistance to prevent disconnections. 3.) Employment - jobs networking, referrals to area employment and training programs, and financial help with employment related expenses. 4.) Health - referrals for public health programs, clinics, mental health counseling, assistance with insurance co-payments and prescription costs. A critical component of START’s success is case management services, in 2014, 59 households were supported with this.
