Ultimately our work is about sustaining hope and encouraging dreams – helping people move beyond “just getting by” so they can lead lives filled with pride, purpose and love.
Our Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT), comprised of a collaboration between Casa Esperanza, Boston University Center for Addictions Research and Services (BU/CARS), and the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program (BHCHP) has for more than a decade established a comprehensive approach that draws on the combined cultural competence, clinical expertise, and research and evaluation experience of each organization creating a model that is responsive to our clients linguistic, cultural, socioeconomic, and health care needs as well as their strengths, abilities and preferences.
The MDT is led by a LICSW and involves a diversity of skills and expertise from peer recovery coaches, health navigators, case managers, and substance abuse counselors. Our holistic approach to integrated care achieves through MDT by developing a Person-Centered Care Plan for each of Casa’s clients. Casa Esperanza’s deep roots in peer-support and self-help traditions connect multiply-diagnosed clients to networks of social support that can help participants manage both physical and emotional stress and reduce self-stigma.
