IN LOVING MEMORY During the past year at HCS, we have had our share of successes, challenges, joys, and sorrows. One of the most significant events that emotionally impacted our professional family this past year was the loss of a beloved colleague. HCS would like to pay tribute to Board Chair Steve Rowland, who passed away this year. Steve was not only an integral part of the HCS family, but a cherished friend by so many. We are glad we had the opportunity to know Steve as he brought compassion, enthusiasm, and a spirit of selfless giving to those around him. We wish comfort for his family members, and look forward to the day we can once again reminisce about him with smiles on our faces as we recount the numerous fun memories we all experienced while he was a part of our lives.

A LETTER FROM JEFF “Without question, HCS has significantly grown over the past year, not only with regards to budgets or programs, but as a collective whole committed to further enhancing our organization. HCS remains dedicated to promoting the wellbeing of each other, as well as those we serve. Our mission is not simply a stale statement resting on some back wall. Rather, it demonstrates a vibrant commitment to do our best for those we serve, while freely lifting those amongst us who may, at times, need the touch of a supportive hand. I have witnessed numerous examples during this past year of staff going well beyond the extra mile to assist one of their peers during difficult times. As we move into the next year, it is my hope that all staff continue to feel valued and view themselves as an integral part of the overall success of our program. HCS remains committed to being the employer of choice in our area for those seeking a career in the behavioral health arena and for those seeking quality behavioral health services.�

JEFF FOX

Executive Director


THIS IS OUR F I N A N C I A L S TAT U S “HCS remained fiscally strong during FY15, ending the year with revenues

ASSETS

totaling $21.5 million - a 2.9% increase over FY14. In contrast to previous years,

Cash and Cash Equivalents.....$4,149,048 Accounts Receivable...............$2,702,496 Property and Equipment..... $11,985,633 TOTAL................................... .$18,837,177

fee revenues which make up 78% of the agency budget remained fairly close to FY14 levels; however, this was offset by gains in other funding categories. Expenditures were closely monitored throughout the year, resulting in a 2% surplus. Once again, the collective efforts of HCS staff, management, and board members throughout the year resulted in continued financial stability as well as an unmodified (clean) audit opinion.”

F E AT U R E D E V E N T : S Y N E R G Y SYNERGY ENERGY The first bi-annual Synergy event replaced the traditional, annual town hall staff meetings, which had previously divided the staff into two groups. Synergy renewed enthusiasm for HCS, as over 300 staff from every HCS location came together under one roof as one team to hear company updates, and be motivated to continue the good work they do daily.

CREATIVE MISSION After a series of videos, Executive Director Jeff Fox explained how the HCS mission utilizes some of the same principles as the mission of the successful Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Company - principles like imagination, creativity, service, empowerment, and motivation.

FUN ACTIVITIES Employees took breaks between each part of the event to participate in the activities scattered about the Higher Ed’s Grand Hall, such as Giant Jenga and Beach Ball Toss.

PHOTO BOOTH The photo booth was filled with props and signs like “Best team ever”, “I just came for the food”, and “Who invited this guy?!”. Staff took advantage of the opportunities to have fun with team members and snap group photos.

JAMES BIRD GUESS Entrepreneur, author, speaker and trainer, James Bird Guess, was able to speak to staff about burnout and remaining enthusiastic about the work they do. He stressed the importance of passion, vision, and perseverance, and engaged every employee in the room.
