Holistic Use of Social Workers

 

Feature 1

Pending Case Trauma Care

We plan to provide a dedicated social worker to help our clients and family navigate the strain of the legal system throughout their case and in post-case transition. We recognize the potential trauma of the uncertainty and pressures caused by living with a pending criminal case, and will work with our clients to provide loving support through this unknown season. 


Feature 2

Legal Case Support

Many criminal accusations arise from the causes of marginalization or health issues. Allowing the defense attorney, the prosecutor, the judge, and/or the jury to know our client’s full story will often significantly affect the outcome of cases. Sentences and prison time can be greatly reduced, if not eliminated, when holistic care and evaluation is provided along with the legal representation. 


Feature 3

Ongoing Care

We will provide our clients with introductions and referrals to partnership social services in hopes to provide additional empowering tools to each unique client and family during the legal system journey and beyond.
