Super Hero of the Month for January!

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 Lucy Mwangi, who is a Residential Counselor for our Group Homes program.

Lucy was nominated by her Supervisor, who wrote:

Lucy works overnights during the week at Foothills Group Home.  She’s always a positive presence, and consistently does far more than expected.  For example, Lucy’s morning routine usually involves assisting two people with morning routines, but I’ve heard about and personally witnessed a couple of times where Lucy has assisted a third person in order to help other staff with morning routines.  Also, on three separate days, Lucy has stayed extra to assist the house when coworkers have been out sick or unable to come to work due to an emergency.  She continuously goes above and beyond on a daily basis and all of her hard work has helped keep the house functioning during a time of short staffing and increased care needs.  Overall, I can’t say enough good things about her.

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