- Implement case management with 15-20 families using a detailed intake protocol aimed at identifying family strengths, needs, and goals. Build effective relationships with each family and help families set and achieve goals. This will include:
- Identify any barriers to communication (e.g., lack of internet, Chromebook, phone service) remaining from Covid-19 and address these so that other Charting Careers services can be provided.
- In partnership with families, explore possible ambivalence, build motivation for change, and work in a supportive, non-judgemental manner.

This would then lead the Family Partnership Coordinator to partner with the parent to explore possible solutions and supports.
