Service Delivery By Heartland RADAC During COVID

Heartland RADAC continues to serve clients while maintaining effective health and safety protocols for both clients and staff. 

Heartland RADAC requests that all clients and staff practice safe social distancing recommendations while engaged in services.  All local mandates by local county or municipality health departments, will also be followed. Masks are recommended for any in-person contact, especially if you have not been vaccinated.

In-person Assessments, Case Management, Peer/Recovery Coaching, and Treatment are available.  Phone, and video appointments are available on a limited basis, dependent on client access to a phone or computer.  We are now required to get signatures on releases, as the state of emergency waiver which allowed verbal consent has expired.  Signatures can be obtained via DocuSign, if you have access to a cell phone or email, or you can download the forms from the Release Forms & Notifications link at the bottom of this page. 

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

Schedulers will ask you a series of questions to determine your eligibility and the type of service (in-person, phone, or video) which will best meet your individual needs. 

How to Give Back in the Workplace

There are some things that belong in the workplace and some that don’t. Luckily, supporting nonprofit organizations has a time and a place where you work! Today, many companies are focused on giving back to their communities on important topics that their team members care about. 

If those types of philanthropic efforts don’t yet exist, this is your chance to create new programs that will continue to give back for years to come. Check out these ways that you can begin to give back in the workplace.

 

Take Advantage of Matching Gifts

Many companies offer a “matching gifts” program. This means that you can choose an organization and the company will match your contributions up to a certain amount. Matching gifts programs may be done using specific software where you can only donate to organizations who have signed up with that solution. Do your research to find out if your company has a program like this that you can contribute toward. If not, see if they might be willing to start. 

 

Host a Day of Giving

Offer up a day of giving back to your coworkers, whether it be after work, on a weekend or if your employer is willing to let you take a work day to give back. It’s important to focus on causes other than simply working with your coworkers to help build camaraderie, and giving back is a perfect example.

If this doesn’t already exist, you could be the one to organize a day of giving for your company. Choose a cause that helps your community or has a special meaning to you or multiple people at your company. 

 

Educate Your Coworkers

It is a proven fact that people give money to causes that they care about. Your coworkers may not be familiar with a cause that is near and dear to your heart. Tell them about the next time you volunteer and your experience. Explain why you care so deeply for the organization. You may recruit the next volunteer or fundraising superstar for your favorite organization. 

Remember, the conversation doesn’t have to be formal. When you open up to others about your own passions, they’ll open up about theirs and may even become interested in a cause you already love and support. 

 

All work and no giving back makes for a dull workplace! Talk to your employer about already existing programs such as matching gifts or time off to volunteer. If these programs don’t yet exist, this is your chance to pave the way! Speak with your employer about how you can establish volunteer opportunities.

Beautiful things grow when we work together for good.
