The Case Management Team of the Child Rescue Centre provides ongoing monitoring and support for more than 500 programs for children, regardless of where they live. Part of the case management process is for caseworkers to visit students at home, at school, and at work in order to ensure that all is well personally, socially, academically, and spiritually within their community.
Joseph Junisa, Henry Kebbie, Amie Nallo, and Deborah Kanneh, recently organized school visits to CRC students living outside of the Bo District. Together, they traveled to Kono, Kenema, Moyamba, Freetown and Rutile to visit with students and their families. While there, they helped students write letters to their sponsors, checked on their health and well-being, and assessed their academic performance. The visit also enabled these caseworkers to check in privately with the students and with their parents, to make sure that each families’ relationship was strong, and the living environment well kept in their communities. During one school visit, a case manager came to notice -- after overseeing how all the children would interact together-- that the CRC effectively connects friends and classmates together. These kids love to play together, eat their lunches together, and love to walk home from school together. The CRC creates a loving and safe environment for students to freely express themselves and find common interests between them and their classmates. The caseworkers were happy to report that all the students are happy in their homes and schools, and performing well academically and socially.
