Providing a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy.
To provide our constituents with ongoing support with their reintegration into the community, MORCA has now added the services of two Reentry Case Managers at the office location. People in need of services will be able to complete an assessment with Case Managers and create an Individual Service Plan that focuses on specific goals they want to achieve. Case managers will also work with individuals on eliminating barriers such as connecting with mental health agencies, seeking housing, clothing, and job preparation assistance.
Constituents can walk-in and speak with a case manager every Monday through Thursday from 9:30 am until 3:00 pm.
Housing Support at MORCA
Understanding that stability plays a very important role in the success of returning home after incarceration, MORCA case managers attempt to assist our constituents with minimizing their instability by providing some housing support.
Case managers are able to give referrals to transitional housing programs if eligible, identify Single Resident Occupancy (SRO) placement when available, and refer HCVP (Section 8) and Rapid Rehousing voucher holders with finding available housing in the District. A list of property management companies with available units is also provided to help those with income seek housing that is considered affordable.
People with families will have to go through Virginia Williams to get referrals to most family housing programs and emergency family shelter placement in the District of Columbia.
If you applied with the DC Housing Authority, you should go to check on your status and update your information as needed to remain eligible for DCHA assistance.
Housing placement is not guaranteed at MORCA, but assistance to identify housing opportunities is available to constituents.
