Enhanced Therapeutic Case Management

Launch Housing

The ETCM program provides up to 6 months of specialise case management and therapeutic support to children with significant support needs as a result of homelessness and/or family violence. Significant needs can result from experiences such as:

  • A history of chronic homelessness or significant ongoing disadvantage
  • Ongoing needs for which there has been no service system response
  • Significant exposure to violence, abuse and trauma
  • History of statutory involvement
  • Disrupted and unmet developmental and/or educational needs

Our Senior Children’s Specialist Workers are able to work with children, their families and referring agencies from a flexible and trauma-informed child-centred approach and offer weekly:

  • Therapeutic developmentally-appropriate activities, involving art and play, for children to process their experiences and realise their goals
  • Enhanced case management and skill development with parents around parenting
  • Optional fun attachment-strengthening activities for families

Any children aged 0-12 living in transitional or long term housing within the Southern Metropolitan region with significant support needs requiring an intensive response are eligible for the program.

The only other requirement is that the referring worker (i.e. housing worker) will need to stay involved with the family for the duration of ETCM support as the program is a co-case management program.
