Case Managers help individuals move beyond violence and access the support and services they need to stay safe. Nonviolence Chicago works with participants on an individual basis to help them set goals, identify their needs, and secure services that help them move forward, including coaching for positive behavior, mentoring, mental health counseling, or referrals to intensive social services. An employment specialist prepares and refer individuals to job readiness training and placement services, and supports both participants and employers in working through the challenges that come with new opportunities. Given the age of many of our participants, schools are a major area of focus. Support is often needed to make learning accessible and safe for young people who may have limited or no positive experiences in a school setting.
