Apportis Wins Lancaster Fairfield Community Action Agency Contract to Help Homeless Youth and Homeless Pregnant Youth
DUBLIN, Ohio, July 29, 2020 (Newswire.com) - Today, Apportis announced that its ‘Case Manager on Demand’ platform has been selected by the Lancaster Fairfield Community Action Agency (LFCAA), pursuant to the issued RFP on April 30, 2020.
The populations to be served by the Apportis platform are homeless youth (ages 14 to 24) and homeless pregnant youth (24 or under) in Fairfield, Licking, Knox, Coshocton, and Holmes counties. These services will be provided in conjunction with current services coordinated through the Homeless Planning Region 9 of the Balance of State Continuum of Care for Homeless services, along with a growing coalition of local partners. The platform is for at-risk and under-served youth populations, including those who have experienced sexual violence, are LGBTQ, those with mental or developmental disabilities, those struggling with addiction, youth who are transitioning out of foster care, or individuals who have had issues with the juvenile justice system.
“We are honored that the LFCAA has selected Apportis to serve their vulnerable citizens,” said Philip Payne, Apportis founder, and CEO. “Our unique platform uses HIPAA-compliant video, and it requires no Wi-Fi. It gives people who do not easily have access to case managers the flexibility and ease of meeting electronically, lessening the distance between program participants and provider, and delivering personalized and intimate support. Our resources can also help them find housing, medical care, food, and jobs - especially during a time of great need to this vulnerable population.”
“We are excited to work with Apportis on developing and deploying this innovative technology to help support youth and pregnant youth who are experiencing or at-risk for homelessness in our five-county region,” said Clinton Davis, Executive Director of LFCAA. “By utilizing a Case Manager on Demand platform, our Case Managers will be able to overcome distance and transportation barriers to connect directly with youth and to facilitate their connection with partner agencies across the region to access the services and supports they need.”
