Park Place Outreach hires Kevin Foard as Transitional Living Program Case Manager
Park Place Outreach Youth Emergency Services has hired Kevin Foard, who had worked as a case manager for the Basic Center of Park Place Outreach, as its transitional living program (TLP) case manager.
“When this opportunity presented itself, there were no hesitations,” Foard said. “It was an honor to learn that Park Place Outreach would ignite the passion to help those individuals who would still need assistance after the age of 18.”
Foard is responsible for providing case management services that include initial screening, record keeping, service coordination, ongoing assessments of residents, aftercare activities and other duties as needed. “The transitional living program provides opportunities for young males between the ages of 16-21 to learn how to become self-sufficient. It is my goal to connect these guys with as many resources as possible to address their needs,” Foard said.
He earlier worked as an educator/administrator with students at the Bethesda Home for Boys to promote student achievement, provide one-on-one help to special needs students and coordinate with other agencies to provide additional services.
