The Boulevard is the only organization of its kind in Illinois: providing coordinated care and a full range of resources for holistic human healing.
One-to-one Case Management
Upon admission, each resident is assigned a Case Manager who offers guidance in obtaining financial assistance, housing opportunities, employment or employment training, and educational opportunities.
Nearly 70 percent of our residents have no relationship to a primary care physician or ongoing health services provider when they arrive. To respond to this need we work with PCC Wellness Center to open our Health Services Collaborative, offering a variety of vitally important health services in an on-site clinic staffed by PCC physicians and nurse practitioners. In addition, we offer transportation for follow-up medical visits if the resident is unable to self-transport and residents are provided a safe place to store their medications.
On-site Mental Health Case Managers assess incoming residents and make appropriate referrals to mental health services. The Boulevard offers substance abuse assessment, one-to-one support and additional programming via our mental health partner, Mount Sinai Hosipital, to serve our clients who struggle with substance abuse.
The Boulevard partners with local HIV/AIDS outreach services to provide confidential on-site testing and counseling; access to primary care, psychosocial support programs, and medications; supportive housing referrals; and weekly HIV/AIDS/STD education programs.
