Kulima Care Family Services serves those in Kentucky with a mission to provide children and youth with stable placements. We do this by recruiting and training qualified foster and adoptive parents. Kulima is Swahili for "to cultivate," which is the foundation of our work, and one of our building blocks is case management. Continue reading to learn what that is and how it works!
What Is Case Management and How Does It Work?
One of Kulima's goals is to foster relationships with the children, families, and communities we serve. Case management is a collaborative process that we believe is key in achieving this goal. The case manager works with the family to identify needs and develop a plan of care. This includes working with other agencies involved in the child's life as well as collaborating with birth parents when possible.
Meets the Needs of Your Foster Child
Part of Kulima's mission is to be certain our case management meets the needs of your foster child. The Kulima staff provides home certification, case management, mental health assessments, clinical support, parent training, and 24-hour crisis support. We strive to exceed the expectations of our children and families.
Coordinate, Assess, and Evaluate Options
Our case management coordinates the cases along with careful assessment. We monitor case management and evaluate all options to provide a family-centered approach for permanency planning. Kulima's ultimate goal is that every child in our care has stability, safety, and support from loving families!

The primary goal of Kulima's support/time-limited case management includes providing early intervention and stabilization efforts to improve family well-being at home. Kulima can help provide parents with resources they may not otherwise be able to access while also helping them enhance their natural support within their community.
