Healthy Whole Humans

Changing

… the trajectory.

As soon as a resident enters the village, they are given assessments.  Those assessment results, taken quarterly provide us with data regarding the  progress of each resident.  In addition to the assessments, an Individualized Empowerment Plan is created identifying both short and long term goals.  These goals are tracked weekly and support is provided where needed. 

We develop goals in the following areas:

  • Stability & Safety 
  • Stress Management & Mental Health (primarily ongoing goals)
  • Self-Care (primarily ongoing goals)
  • Social Support (primarily ongoing goals)
  • Self-Sufficiency/Sustainable Work

We meet each resident where they are:

  • We have a 1-9 ratio of staff to program participant.
    The industry standard is 1-30 staff to program participant.
  • The staff meets with each resident on a weekly basis to review short-term and long-term personal goals.
    The industry standard is 30 – 45 days

Our relational approach is a game-changer!

Celebrating

… the wins while moving forward.

In the short time since Working Fusion launched, our residents are growing and moving their lives forward. Among their accomplishments:

  • We have coordinated and financially supported over 170 hours of on-site resident therapy since April 2022 and will continue to do so.
  • More than half or our residents are in school finishing high school, GEDs, and college courses.
  • Many of our residents are working to stabilize areas of their lives including mental health and/or legal issues so they can start or return to school.
  • Our residents are also choosing trade school opportunities.

The programmed village model is working!

Building

… healthy whole humans.

One of the pillars of our program is our 12-module Life Skills Education curriculum. We collaborate with city industry and sector experts to provide a high level of expertise within each module. Volunteers follow-up with residents to ensure comprehension and implementation of learned and applicable skills. 

Our Life Skills Curriculum includes:

  • Financial Literacy
  • Communication
  • Nutrition
  • Auto Education
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Professional Development
  • Time Management
  • Health/Safety
  • Household Management
  • Goal Setting
  • Community Involvement
  • Healthy Hobbies

Another key component of our program is creating an environment that fosters relationships between the residents. We develop and host resident events that build community and support healthy peer relationships.

Our Resident Activities include:

  • Movie nights
  • Scavenger hunts
  • Downtown coffee tours
  • Building healthy hobbies

“You all have done a lot and helped a lot. It has changed the trajectory of where my life was going or heading to. Living in the village has helped me by talking to Jill in therapy and having support. It takes a lot of stress and weight off your shoulders. It gives you some sense of security.”

“It has opened my eyes to finding out what I love doing which is helping people. I hope to come back and continue supporting people who are in a position I once was in.”
