Systems of Care Planning
This week a Systems of Care Planning meeting was held at Intandem. The meeting was a follow-up from discussions at the January Cattaraugus County Community Services Board meeting, during which attendees and agency representatives expressed concerns about making appropriate referrals and ensuring services are met for individuals in the county.
Everyone brought their “thinking caps” and were prepared to discuss openly how services and referral sources are navigated in our county. It was agreed that access to mental health referrals and services would be one of the first focus areas.
ARC READY Non-Profits
As part of our participation in the ARC READY Non-Profits program this past fall, STHCS is eligible to apply for a $25,000 grant to increase the capacity of our organization’s programs. We have decided to apply for funding to support our Step Into Healthcare program, which will allow more dedicated staff time. The ARC offered this opportunity to those who participated in the ARC READY program, and we are grateful for the opportunity to apply for these funds.
