OneHeart adds to list of provider partners

Two more partners have joined an already long list of providers who will serve guests at OneHeart: A Place for Hope & Healing when the campus opens next year.

Consumer Credit Counseling Service of the Black Hills and Mommy’s Closet, a program of Volunteers of America Northern Rockies, signed official agreements with OneHeart at the end of 2019.

OneHeart Executive Director Charity Doyle refers to these organizations as “Tier 2” providers only because they will not lease permanent office space on the campus. Still, they have committed to providing valuable services to OneHeart guests.

“The Tier 2 are so important because they're taking it a step further,” Doyle said. “Instead of saying ‘Your clients have to come to me,’ they are breaking down that barrier in coming to the campus to work directly with our clients, so it's going to be a huge benefit.”

Consumer Credit Counseling Education and Community Outreach Manager Terry Mills says CCCS/BH provides individuals and families with the skills, knowledge and confidence to manage their money and credit.

“Managing your money and credit is the foundation for long-term stability and increased opportunities for home ownership and maintaining home ownership," Mills said. "We are excited to be in the OneHeart network to be able to provide these much needed and requested services to our community.”

How the various Tier 2 providers schedule their time on campus remains to be seen, but the OneHeart plan always took into consideration those providers who might choose to offer classes or provide other services intermittently.

“That's why that flexible space on campus is so very important – to make sure we have the spaces in a variety of sizes and shapes for them to be able to come in and do that work,” Doyle said. “Because we know that the campus can't be everything to everybody.”

“Mommy’s Closet will be working with OneHeart to host a diaper pantry on site where participants can access emergency diaper supplies,” Mommy’s Closet Service Coordinator Sarah McSparran said. “Access to the clothing closet will remain available at our 111 New York location."

McSparran added that case management services can be utilized by participants upon discharge and community placement to ensure ongoing success as they stabilize in their new lifestyle and environment.

While all the permanent office space at OneHeart is reserved at this point, Doyle says OneHeart would welcome more Tier 2 providers as campus plans are refined.

“There are partners who maybe haven't come to the table yet that might at some point be a good addition,” she said.

A heartfelt ‘thank you’ from OneHeart …

A heartfelt thank you goes out to Anna Marie Thatcher, producer and director of “A Christmas Collection: Songs & Stories to Celebrate the Season,” the Performing Arts Center staff, and all of the musicians, storytellers, actors, dancers, and behind-the-scenes workers who contributed their time and talents to the holiday program, which raised more than $7,500 for OneHeart.

Thank you, too, to all of you who took a pause from your busy December to attend the show and join in celebrating the season, supporting the future OneHeart campus, and honoring the memory of our benefactor Ray Hillenbrand. We heard from several people who said, “Ray would have loved it,” and we agree wholeheartedly.

As we move forward into 2020, let us take with us a line from one of the many beautiful songs featured in the program: The secret of Christmas is not the things you do at Christmas time, but the Christmas things you do all year through.
