VOA Chesapeake & Carolinas expands care into Baltimore

Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas (VOACC) Friday announced the expansion of its Targeted Case Management (TCM)/Care Coordination programming to Baltimore after the nonprofit was selected for an up to five-year contract to provide services for youth and their families by Behavioral Health System Baltimore, Inc.

VOACC has historically operated TCM in Montgomery County and Prince George’s County and has implemented and operated TCM services for adults and children using a Systems of Care approach since March 2014.

The Targeted Case Management program allows Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas to expand the scope of its mental health services. The program serves adults and children that are enrolled, or are eligible to enroll, in the Maryland Medical Assistance Program (Medicaid) and struggle with serious and persistent mental health challenges. TCM provides case management, referrals to community services and resources, crisis intervention and education referral and assistance, among other services.

Referrals come from agencies and organizations such as DJS, DSS and schools; adults, youth over the age of 16 and caregivers may also self-refer.
