Moving Forward Together
Thanks to the WNY COVID-19 Community Response Fund, we have been working in partnership with CAReS, ACASA, Clarity Wellness Community, and the Cattaraugus County Department of Community Services on the “Moving Forward Together” initiative. This program will increase access to internet service in Cattaraugus and Allegany counties to allow individuals in treatment for Substance Use Disorder to access telehealth counseling services essential for their recovery.
Much work has gone into identifying locations through the two counties that may serve as sites that individuals can access equipment and internet that will allow them to complete their treatment conveniently. We have contacted several public libraries, town halls, other healthcare facilities, and fire departments. We are excited to see this project moving forward and look forward to continuing the work we have completed thus far.
This past week and this coming weekend have been full of high school graduation events. I want to wish our Student Program Assistant, Micheyla, happy high school graduation! We are excited that she will be working with us full-time this summer before attending college at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. Micheyla assists on several Southern Tier Health Care System programs and has focused on increasing our turnout for our blood drives! Congratulations to all those who are graduating and especially to Micheyla!
