Karibu Community Care Team 

This culturally specific outreach team serves approximately 30-35 clients at any given time. This case load currently consists of clients residing in the community (pre- and post-enrollment) and will soon also include clients living in the Karibu Stabilization for Treatment Preparation program (STP). Community outreach is provided from a large passenger vehicle to allow program staff to work within the community. Once enrolled, Karibu participants have access to seamlessly integrated services delivered by the KCCT if living in the community (for up to 6 months), or in the Karibu STP if living on-site once opened, as outlined below. 

Client will be offered a menu of services that they can choose from.  

Services include include (in development): 

  • Clinical and case management stabilization outreach services. 
  • Behavioral health assessment and care planning 
  • Individual and group therapy 
  • Psychosocial skill development 
  • Service navigation/advocacy 
  • Crisis planning and intervention services 
  • Individualized peer support 
  • Housing/employment case management 
  • Family and community connection 
  • Transportation to cultural and treatment activities/services 

This approach supports the client-centered and trauma informed service model the team aims to provide. 

Karibu Stabilization for Treatment Preparation 

Clients will be offered the same menu of services listed above, along with 24/7 support and housing in the Karibu facility.
