Updates to Service Delivery by Heartland RADAC due to COVID - 19

 

It is the intention of Heartland RADAC to continue serving clients to the best of our ability, while adhering to the restrictions of the Statewide Stay at Home Order No 20-16, issued by Governor Kelly, which went into effect on March 30, 2020.   https://governor.kansas.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/EO20-16.pdf

In order to continue providing services, Heartland RADAC has made a few adjustments to allow us to continue working with clients by phone and telemed/video, while maintaining the social distancing requirements due to COVID – 19.   

All Assessments, Case Management, Peer/Recovery Coaching and Treatment will be performed via phone and/or video depending on the technology available. 

When you call in to the agency main number, our schedulers will ask you a series of questions to make sure you have the ability to complete an assessment.  Once scheduled,  our staff will assist you in getting connected to you based on your responses to the following questions.   

Questions re: technology will include: 

1) Do you have the ability to download an app on your computer or phone? 

2) If yes – are you willing to download the app needed to complete a service via video. 

3) Do you have an email? Are you currently able to retrieve emails? 

4) What is your contact number we can reach you? 

5) Is there an identified Voicemail, where we can leave a confidential message? 

Please call us at 913-789-0951 or 1-800-281-0029 to schedule an assessment.

The 5 Best Practices of an All-Star Volunteer

We appreciate all of our volunteers and we want you to have an enjoyable and rewarding experience as you volunteer for us or other organizations. We’ve found that the best volunteers follow these simple tips for volunteering nirvana.

Come prepared. For example, if you’re working a soup kitchen, don’t show up in nice business attire (wear clothes that are okay to get dirty—and remember, it’s for a good cause). Likewise if you’re planting a community garden, bring tools such as shovels and garden gloves. Don’t expect the nonprofit to provide all needed materials. Do some background research before showing up ill prepared.

Be on time. Assuming you signed up for a shift, your volunteer time is valuable to a nonprofit organization. Don’t waste any precious minutes because you “couldn’t find parking” or “were just running late.” Plan accordingly.

Even, dare we say it, get there early.

Get ready to serve. The whole purpose of your volunteering is to give back. Showing up with a persnickety attitude is no way to be a happy giver.

Come with a positive, adaptable attitude. Perhaps on that particular day, you’ll be asked to perform a job you didn’t sign up for. Accept it. Do it willingly. Make it easier on the organizers and show everyone what it means to be a great volunteer.

Be open to learning. Your duty might require some training. Don’t be insulted or offended. No matter your educational background, you probably don’t know everything there is to know. And chances are, your organizers will be more familiar with certain aspects of that nonprofit you’re volunteering for.

Be a patient student, ready and eager to learn what’s necessary to perform your job to the best of your ability.

Be happy. Studies show that people who volunteer are happier and less stressed. Consider your time volunteering as a valuable opportunity to de-stress from your other daily responsibilities.
