RESOURCE 2014 Appreciation Report

Together

Thrive. Achieve. Advance.

From Leadership

Kelly-Bill-letterTogether is the strategic word for 2014.

Reducing disparities in health, employment, and education for our most vulnerable community members requires strong partnerships. Working Together, in ways even better than before, is critical to empowering the individuals we serve to achieve greater success.

We help single mothers believe in themselves, and set and meet their career goals. Parenting mothers complete chemical dependency treatment while being able to live with their children. Job searchers gain skills, prepare for the workplace, and enter into careers. Individuals achieve industry credentials to secure living-wage jobs. Families move off of welfare and into work.

Because of your support, nearly 20,000 people found the employment services, career education, and chemical and mental health services they needed to make significant changes in their lives. Additional highlights include:

  • RESOURCE and four mental health organizations launched a health information exchange with health-care providers to integrate care for mental health patients across the state.
  • HEART, Inc. and RESOURCE merged to bridge the gap to recovery for individuals.
  • Recovery services were launched to serve women, in the underserved, five-county area around Princeton, Minn.

Gratefully,
