New Grants Expand Programming in Indiana

Indiana |

Centerstone has recently been awarded a number of new philanthropic grants to help expand available programming in communities we serve in Indiana.

Newly awarded CEASe of Scott County funds will help embed a Health Coach at Foundations Family Medicine in Austin. The health coach will meet with patients and their doctor whenever a substance use disorder is suspected, providing information about Centerstone treatment options and creating a personal connection to Centerstone services, making it more likely that the patient will follow-through with a referral to treatment. The Health Coach will also be available to work one-on-one with Centerstone clients, including those referred by Foundations Family Medicine, to provide life skills training and health education.

The Union County Foundation awarded Centerstone a Community Impact Grant to create Teen Depression Support Groups. In cooperation with the Union County School Corporation, two treatment and support groups will be created to benefit Union County Middle School and Union County High School students during the 2019-2020 school year. Funds from the Union County Foundation will allow us to serve 15 students in each group, even if they have no health insurance or their health insurance policy does not cover group therapy. Reporting on the program will be shared with the school corporation in the hope that they can include this service in their annual budget in future years, making the group available to all students who need it, regardless of income or insurance status.

Southeastern Indiana REMC’s Operation Round Up awarded funding for 3 new Mobile Play Therapy Kits in Jennings County, making play therapy available to the 300+ children seen in Jennings County. Mobile Play Therapy Kits are portable rolling totes packed with therapeutic toys, games, art supplies, and other kid-friendly materials. Since we know that children, particularly very young children, speak through play, these kits are critical to our ability to effectively treat children who have experienced trauma. We’ve heard wonderful things about the kits in other counties and are excited to bring this tool to families and children in Jennings County.

Gifts like these allow us to reach individuals and families in new and innovative ways so that we break down barriers and provide the care they need.
