New Logos for Innovations!

We are excited to announce that Innovations has a new logo!  Actually, two new logos to be exact: one for our Innovations for Children program, and one for Innovations in general.  These new logos were designed as part of an effort by Imagine! to unify brand standards across all of Imagine!'s Services.  The new Innovations for Children logo illustrates the focus we put on supporting the children we serve.  The new Innovations logo shows how we create opportunities for people both in their homes, and in the broader community.  You should expect to see the new logos on all Innovations documents, communications, and on our new website (coming soon!).

Super Hero of the Month for May!

Every month, Innovations presents the “Super Hero of the Month” award to the employee or provider who has best demonstrated excellence in one or more of our Innovations Quality Standards:
  • Health, Safety, and Wellbeing
  • Effective and Efficient
  • Respect and Dignity
  • Opportunities
  • Integrity
  • Care

This month, the award was presented to Margaret Kuwata, who is a Primary Residential Counselor for our Bob and Judy Charles Group Home (one of our two Smart Homes).

Margaret was nominated by her supervisor, who wrote:

Due to some management and staff changes, Margaret is currently working extra hours each week to help take over most of the assistant site supervisor responsibilities at the Bob and Judy Charles Home. This has been a great help to me and the house. She has been able to accomplish all the extra tasks completely, and this is really helping me keep the Bob and Judy Charles Home stable. She has also taken the initiative to help solve any issues that occur, and report back to me that things have been handled. She has done a fantastic job this first week of being the "interim" assistant supervisor.  Also, Margaret is always willing to plan outings that are meaningful to the individuals at the home, and recently took four people by herself for a girl’s day out.

If you see Margaret around, please congratulate her on being our Super Hero of the Month!
