YFS, Community Health sign on with OneHeart

Two more organizations have signed official agreements to provide on-site services at OneHeart: A Place for Hope & Healing once the transformation campus opens its doors in 2021.

Community Health Center of the Black Hills has agreed to operate an urgent care clinic and pharmacy in the main provider building at OneHeart.

Preliminary design plans show this clinic as “outward facing,” meaning it would be open to both OneHeart guests and other community members.

Youth & Family Services also joined the list of on-site providers with plans to offer counseling for parents and children, as well as services provided through its Stronger Family Program that promote developing and maintaining healthy relationships. Other YFS services at OneHeart will include prenatal education and transportation to YFS-based Head Start and Early Head Start programs.

One of the main purposes of OneHeart is to reduce the number of barriers people face as they try to work their way out of poverty. Having several partner agencies located just steps away from the transitional living towers is a win-win for providers and program participants.

“We foresee this partnership benefiting OneHeart guests because they will have access to these critical services,” YFS Communications Coordinator Brianna Nelson said in a statement.
“This partnership benefits YFS by assisting us in fulfilling our mission to support children and their families in being capable, caring, contributing members of the community."

YFS and Community Health add their names to an already long list of partners committed to leasing space at OneHeart to provide on-site services. To date, that includes Behavior Management Systems, Black Hills Special Services Cooperative/Career Learning Center of the Black Hills, Catholic Social Services, Dress for Success Black Hills, National Alliance on Mental Illness South Dakota, Rapid City Area Schools’ McKinney-Vento Program, Western Dakota Tech, Working Against Violence, Inc., and the Rapid City YMCA. Organizations that choose not to lease office space will have opportunities to rent meeting space on campus for programs or classes that serve OneHeart guests as well.

Database Training
Implementation Consultant Keli Sobers of WellSky visited Rapid City last month to train OneHeart Executive Director Charity Doyle and Special Projects Coordinator Carrie Robley on the CMIS program OneHeart will use on campus.

CMIS stands for "Collaborative Management Information System." The shared database will allow OneHeart to collect important data and track guests' progress.
JLG Kickoff Meeting
JLG Architects hosted a kickoff design meeting at their Main Street office on Sept. 16 to bring together members of the architecture firm with OneHeart staff and other community members who will work on campus renovations, landscaping and security.

Besides a basic overview of the construction budget and blueprints, discussion also included topics such as guest confidentiality and safety.
