WeCAREWeCARE, the New York City Human Resources Administration’s Wellness, Comprehensive Assessment, Rehabilitation and Employment program, addresses the needs of cash assistance clients with medical and/or mental health barriers to employment by providing customized assistance and services to help them achieve their highest levels of self-sufficiency.

The WeCARE program is available by referral only. Based on the outcome of a comprehensive assessment, a case manager works with an individual client to develop a customized plan that connects them to a range of appropriate services.

Fedcap operates WeCARE in Brooklyn and Queens, providing a continuum of individualized and integrated services in a caring, structured and results-oriented environment. Based on an extensive medical and psychosocial assessment and comprehensive case management, we connect clients with health resources; vocational rehabilitation; work-readiness training; job placement and retention; advocacy for federal disability benefits, and other services.

We focus on:

  • Assisting eligible individuals to obtain federal disability benefits.
  • Helping those who are not eligible for federal disability benefits, but whose medical and/or mental health conditions reduce their functional capacity, to attain the maximum levels of self-sufficiency and, whenever possible, employment.
  • Engaging all program participants to obtain necessary medical and/or mental health services and encouraging their compliance with treatment.
  • Encouraging and assisting all program participants to comply with HRA and WeCARE requirements.
