Community Case Management (or Case Management Services) is defined and distinguished from insurance, hospital, non-profit and independent case management. The areas of focus of Community Case Management - disseminating information, personal adjustment counseling and acting as a personal resource - are defined and explained. A Community Case Management services program is summarized and the results of community case management are documented. Case Management with the Hispanic population is discussed. Two case studies are presented, one for a young Hispanic man and the other for a young Anglo man. Suggestions for working with a Hispanic case load are discussed.
