Case Management

The Honolulu Community Action Program’s ultimate goal of case management is to promote and support independence and self-sufficiency. Case management is a multi-step process to ensure access to and coordination of social services to meet an individual’s and family’s comprehensive needs.

Case management includes the following processes: intake, assessment of needs, service planning, implementation, monitoring and follow-up, crisis intervention, and case closure.

HCAP’s case management activities are diverse. In addition to assisting clients to access and maintain specific services, case management activities may include, but are not limited to:

  • Employment readiness training and employment search assistance
  • Clothing for interviews and/or work
  • Homeless housing referral assistance, Section 8 referral, housing referral assistance
  • Food security programs
  • Energy and utility assistance programs
  • Assistance in filling in paper work, such as welfare, insurance, loan documents etc.
  • Copy machine and fax machine usage
  • Community information and resource center, and one time assistance providing minor items such as hygiene products, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, toilet paper, etc.

Competency-Based (C-Base) Hawaii Adult Community School Diploma Program

The ultimate goal is for students to obtain their Hawaii Adult Community School Diploma using the Competency-Based Community School Diploma Program (C-Base) developed by the Department of Education.

  • Each student is offered case management and provided with the support and tools needed to be successful in obtaining their diploma.
  • Each student must attend and complete five units which consist of 12 classes each and a unit test.
  • Each student is required to complete one hundred work or volunteer hours as a condition for participation in the program.

Many students choose to further their education by either enrolling in post-secondary education, vocational training, or the military while others will continue to work or obtain employment with future growth.

The C-Base program consists of two phases:
Phase I involves the successful completion of five units:
(1) Health; (2) Government and Law; (3) Consumer Economics; (4) Community Resources, and (5) Occupational Knowledge. Classroom attendance allows students to gain life skills that will enable them to become productive community members and increase their employability.

In Phase II, participants will demonstrate their improved life skills, readiness to accept responsibility, and ability to move forward as “functionally competent” members of their communities through at least one of the following outcomes: (1) acceptance for post-secondary educational training; (2) employment; (3) obtaining or possessing a marketable skill; or (4) demonstration of home or life management skills.
