Targeted Adult Service Coordination (TASC) is a non-fee service program consisting of several levels of services for those entering Emergency Protective Custody or are at high risk of entering Emergency Protective Custody.
These services support both the Emergency and Community Support Levels of Care, and occur through the provision of specialized case management/service coordinating services and a 24-hour crisis response component.
TASC provides goal-oriented individualized supports focusing on improved self-sufficiency, and may provide occasional supportive counseling and crisis intervention services when allowed by regulatory or funding authorities.
TASC is a collaboration of Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska, Blue Valley Behavioral Health Centers and House of Hope. Funding for TASC is provided by Region V for services to 16 Nebraska counties in the Region V catchment areas.
