Spend More Quality Time with Families
A Case Study: Houston County Department of Human Services
Since implementing Traverse® social workers in the Child/Family and Adult units spend more quality face-to-face time with families and connect them to services faster. They have a holistic view of critical case information to focus on safety and outcomes, not just paperwork.
