My Community Cares
United Way of Acadiana, with funding from Blue Cross Blue Shield, has launched My Community Cares. This program responds to immediate needs in the community as a respones to the COVID-19 crisis, utilizing the Unite Us platform to allow information sharing and coordination across nonprofits and public agencies.
My Community Cares works by serving as a “quarterback” to help drive client care. Families or individuals can be referred into the program by various groups. A case manager is assigned to work with them to make sure they have basic needs such as food, shelter and clothing. Once the client’s basic needs are assessed and met, the case manager can make sure the client is plugged into any of the many other social service agencies in the area, such as help finding a job, education, parenting classes, or financial management.
