Workshop Descriptions

*Ozanam Orientation and The Home Visit are required for all Vincentians within one year of joining the Society of St. Vincent de Paul.

Beginner's CMS (9:00 am- 12:00 pm)

This course provides a summary of what CMS is and how it is to be used in working with clients via Case Management. The class details the step by step instructions for navigating the system and how to access the required information for case file creation and updates. The class will also include any relevant updates or changes to the system or the operation of the system regarding intake and case management processes and responsibilities.

The Home Visit (12:30 pm - 2:30 pm)

The Home Visit is a very important part of SVdP’s work with its clients. There are specific procedures and guidelines to adhere to as a Home Visitor. In this class, Vincentians will become familiar with the proper way to conduct a Home Visit, from safety protocol to documentation. This part of the day will include an open discussion about home visits.

Ozanam Orientation (9:00 am- 12:00 pm)

Whether you’ve been a Vincentian for two days or two decades, Ozanam Orientation offers you an opportunity to be inspired, informed, refreshed and renewed in what it means to be a member of The Society and how that membership is to be lived in the Conference and everyday life.
