During this planning phase, the grantee will develop a comprehensive program to bridge social, health, parenting and occupations resources for AFDC women diagnosed with alcohol/substance abuse problems, mental health problems, or both. Working with local agencies, a targeted case manager will assess the family's needs and develop a long-term treatment plan incorporating a wide range of services including detoxification, drug treatment, psychological therapy, parenting skills, respite child care, legal assistance, literacy building, vocational skill development, and transportation assistance.
