New Innovations Facebook Page, and Website Update!

We're excited to announce that we have updated the Innovations website!  Click here to check out the redesign.  The new website has information about the variety of options offered by Innovations, as well as links to Innovations documents and resources.  You can even fill out an application to be a Contract Provider with us, right on the website!

We've also created a Facebook page for Innovations, which will feature stories about the people who accept our services, as well as useful information and tips for our stakeholders.  Click here to view the Innovations Facebook page, and click here to view the Facebook page we created for our Innovations for Children program.

These changes will help us keep you better informed about what we are doing at Innovations, and we hope you LIKE them :)

Super Hero of the Month for June!

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 Amy Brissette, who is a Foster Care Placement Worker for our Innovations for Children program.

Amy was nominated by her supervisor, who wrote:

Amy recently made a home visit for one of her foster children, and while she was at the home, an adult that is in services became escalated and the police had to be called.  While Amy had only planned a short visit, Amy stayed at the home for over four hours waiting for the individual to calm down and she stayed outside with the foster child so that they were protected from the situation.  Amy did an amazing job comforting and reassuring the foster child throughout the incident.  Amy did not leave until she was sure that her foster child was safe.  Amy truly exemplified excellence and dedication in this situation, and I would like to commend her for her hard work.

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