We are Grateful
The Center for Respite Care can serve our clients due, in large part, to our partners. This starts with the citizens of Hamilton County who support the Senior Services Tax Levy (on the November ballot) – of which we are a part, the area hospitals, and many service providers. The Center itself serves as a place for our clients to heal and get back on their feet – and it is the knowledge, experience, and helping hands that our partners lend – that assist with this transition.
We pay tribute to:
- Area nursing homes that will accept people who are truly homeless.
- Social Security Administration to aid with referral sources to help people who are admitted or pre-admitted to the Center.
- Numerous Mental health services – that offer us support and guidance. (and thank you to those workers who volunteer at the Center and connect with our clients.)
- Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) and the providers who assist our clients as substance use disorder is an ongoing challenge.
- Any nonprofit that specialized in helping to lift barriers of poverty. Poverty is a challenge that is only overcome through team efforts.
- Job training and placement programs that help our clients find work and maintain long-term viability.
- Providers of childcare for those clients and individuals with families.
- Area transportation providers who help us move our clients from one place to another.
- Internship experiences for staff and places that help us to become better educated.
- Those entities that provide an educational experience for clients and help our clients return to the workforce.
Through these relationships, we have constructed our own “continuum” that helps our client in mind-body, and spirit. Our clients come to us with significant health challenges. We are glad to provide them the space, time, and care to heal. Our social workers then reach out to the community and make the vital connections necessary. Our upcoming annual campaign will highlight the clients who have made the transition.
The Center relies upon charitable donations, government support, and grants. While the financial component is vital – so too are relationships with support organizations. Please contact us if you or your organization is interested in working with us.
