She is the first to offer help, in a new project that we talk about in our IDP Staff Meetings. She has identified areas were we can improve our communication with outside agencies regarding the DSP services and process.
When I hear her with new consumers, Bobbi is professional, welcoming, and patient with those that can come in misdirecting their frustrations at her.
Bobbi I want to thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for the program and myself.

During a recent incident, she was very quick to respond to one of the therapists' concerns about a towel dispenser on the bathroom wall adjacent to the therapist’s office. Karen acted quickly to replace a louder dispenser (that startled clients in Jody’s office) with one that was much more quiet. Furthermore, Karen is always very personable, kind, helpful, and conscientious in her work."

For example, she types minutes for DBT Consultations and covers for other DBT therapists when they are out on vacation or other leaves. She is always up to date on her documentation and seems to have a good system that helps her track her record-keeping. This makes it easy for others for pick up where she left off and communicate regarding a client's treatment. Jody often collaborates with others to meet the needs of clients.

Furthermore, Jody is trustworthy and dependable, always supportive and respectful of others on the team."

She seems to aim at raising the self-esteem/self-confidence of clients, and in-turn, they appear more productive and successful in their recovery. Thanks Mary Jo!"
Kevin Schmeling, Shelter Care (Recognized for Exceptional Commitment by Michael Ragen, Amy Lumaye, Shelter Care on Sep 19, 2018)
"During a high level crisis situation supervisor, Kevin Schmeling responded to the crisis quickly. Kevin wasn't even on call but was at Shelter Care within 10 minutes of calling him. When he arrived his first priority was to make sure everyone was alright and safe. He then stepped in and made arrangements to help clean up the aftermath. Kevin went beyond his duties to disinfect, remove broken items/glass, and remained with staff until after midnight until facility was back to normal. He would repeatedly tell staff that they did a great job, reassuring that staff handled the crisis the best way possible. Kevin returned back to Shelter Care by 7am to get proper counselors and debriefing sessions for youths and staff involved. He was the real team leader when the leader was needed.
We thank Kevin for being an exceptional supervisor and the dedication he displays on a daily basis.
Michael and Amy
Youth Support Specialists"
