Alabama's Human Resources Department also helps clients by providing case management services. The case management process uses a series of tasks to identify and implement assistance options available from various social programs. Case management allows caseworkers to efficiently and effectively monitor progress levels for clients who are receiving simultaneous care from multiple providers.

Targeted Case Management is designed for a specific subset of clients aged 18 and over. The process helps facilitate application and enrollment procedures for social, educational and health care programs. TCM is designed to protect at-risk individuals who are especially vulnerable to victimization, maltreatment or abuse, as well as clients in danger of institutionalization resulting from an in-home caregiver's inadequate care.

The department offers an array of family-focused support services, such as child care options, cash relief programs and food stamp benefits. Other resources include child protective services, adoption assistance and help with foster care.
