Social Services

Social Services is a fundamental part of what the Carter Burden Network offers. Our delivery of social services and case management means connecting you to resources by drawing upon our understanding of how benefits work, and how to make them work for you. CBN offers assistance to help address your concerns individually, confidentially and effectively. 

Our Case Management and Social Service Units help with issues that include government benefits, landlord/tenant disputes, transitional healthcare and much more. CBN’s Elder Mistreatment & Abuse Prevention Program helps ensure that you can live with the confidence and protection you deserve. And our Caregiver Resource Program provides information and support to informal unpaid caregivers for loved ones who are 60 and older with a variety of diagnoses.
