A Warm Welcome from the CEO and Board Chair

2014 was a year of significant accomplishment at Wellspring, despite major changes to healthcare in Kentucky and across the nation. A record number of clients, 688 in all, found support at Wellspring last year - that’s a 23% increase over 2013! Our Crisis Stabilization Program served 433 men and women, while our Supportive and Affordable Housing Programs served an additional 255 people. Funding shifts, the implementation of Medicaid Managed Care, the Affordable Care Act and the related expansion of Medicaid in Kentucky hit the world of service delivery in a big way. Our team struggled to understand the impact on our clients and services as the system undertook the largest overhaul in its history. On June 30th, we had a waiting list of 132 adults requesting permanent housing; 82% of them were homeless. We were also facing a state funding cut of about $500,000, and a shift to greater reliance on Medicaid reimbursements. We responded to the flux and uncertainty of the situation with a barrage of meetings with state officials, legislators, Seven Counties Services executives, and Managed Care leaders. In the end, the increased communication strengthened these ties and better positioned us to serve even more people in the future. On a celebratory note, in June Wellspring was awarded a three-year accreditation by CARF - The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. We are proud to have received CARF’s highest possible ranking on our first accreditation attempt! CARF is an international accrediting body; this achievement signals to the world that we are in the field’s top tier in terms of clinical and administrative standards. This accreditation will help us compete for funding in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace.

“It can happen to anyone,” assured Tonia, who hobbled into the CSU on crutches, homeless, disoriented and broken. Before depression she was living in a prestigious downtown condominium, but suddenly found herself sleeping in the kitchen of a homeless shelter. “I could smell the spoiled sour mop water on the floor,” her voice cracked as she thought back to that time. “The CSU staff saved my life,” she beamed, her demeanor changing. She needed someone to listen, and they did, without any judgment. At her most vulnerable time, when she felt like a failure, “they gave me my pride back and made me whole again.” Tonia described how she became close to clients and staff alike in the family-type setting and “felt myself getting stronger and more confident every day,” adding that the self-help sessions, art projects, journaling, and group outings in the neighborhood provided great outlets for stress relief. Today Tonia is an advocate for Mental Health awareness and wants others to know that they too can find “peace in the valley.” “I really can’t say enough about the staff,” insisted Tonia. “They saved my life,” she repeated.

Scott “I woke up in a shelter - then got sent to the hospital for a month and a half. I never want to go through a period like that again. I felt as low as a person can get,” Scott reflects. He adds, “That was it for me – I knew then that I couldn’t do it on my own. It wasn’t easy, asking for help, but I’m so glad I did, because it was my time at Ardery House that got me here today.” Scott just celebrated 6 years in Wellspring’s Supportive Housing Program. When asked how he’s making it work, he responds “I keep working on my treatment plan, participate in group therapy, and I even volunteer when I can. Best of all, though, is being back in the lives of my parents and children. Because of Wellspring, I’m stronger and I can enjoy my life more – and I know my family does, too!”

Affordable Housing “I love it here, it’s convenient, I feel safe, and we all look out for one another. It’s home!”

Safe, attractive, affordable housing that provides a platform for recovery and community membership.

I’ve done it all,” shares Anita. “Before finding Wellspring, I was in and out of the hospital, and eventually ended up homeless and in a shelter. Then I got to the CSU and things started coming together.” Anita says it was the supportive, recovery-focused programming that helped her open up and really start recovering. “They gave me help, but then also gave me space to figure things out for myself,” she recalls. “And they helped me understand how important my meds are to staying stable. Trust me, I’ll never need to learn that lesson again!” Anita went from the CSU to Ardery House, and then into Supportive Housing – and now look at me here!” Anita is all “settled and cozy” in the Wellspring Bridge Apartments, thanks to the subsidized rent that makes it possible. “I love it here,” she smiles. “It’s convenient, I feel safe, and we all look out for one another. It’s home!”

Highlights of the Year

Journey Program Transition In January, 2014 the Journey Program shifted from a single site, transitional housing program for 8 adult homeless women who have a mental illness diagnosis and substance abuse issue, to a scattered-site, permanent supportive housing program for 18 women who are experiencing the same hurdles. The program continues to use evidence-based practices, but now takes a “housing first” approach. We will help these women settle into their own apartments and provide the supports they need to maintain their housing as they address the illnesses and behaviors that have precipitated their hospitalizations, arrests, and homelessness.

Wellspring Celebrates Accreditation The crowning achievement of 2014 came when CARF, the Council on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities awarded Wellspring’s CSU Program a Three-Year Accreditation. Over our 32 year history, Wellspring’s dedication, commitment and effectiveness have been widely recognized, but CARF’s commendation brings a seal of approval from a preeminent authority. In conferring the award, Wellspring was particularly applauded for the dignity and respect staff provide to clients, the warm therapeutic environment at the CSUs, and the agency’s commitment to program stability and the continuity of quality care. Wellspring was also commended for its extensive collaborative relationships with individuals and groups that enhance our ability to achieve maximum recovery for those we serve.

Meredith Brown Receives Wellspring Volunteer of the Year Award For Wellspring’s first-ever Annual Volunteer of the Year Award, the committee wanted to find the most exemplary award recipient possible. Nominations were sought, and Meredith Brown was quickly and unanimously selected as that person. Beyond being a current, highly engaged board member, Meredith’s commitment to Wellspring is felt throughout the agency, by clients and staff alike. For all the ways she furthers Wellspring’s mission, we salute this very special supporter, Meredith Brown.

iHOP Study Funded The study’s outcomes will demonstrate the impact of Wellspring’s unique approach to permanent supportive housing on the quality of life for adults with severe mental illness, on the traditional health care and criminal justice systems, as well as utilization of other social services, and overall client life satisfaction.

Jan Massey Honored for Peer Support Role Wellspring’s Janet Massey was awarded the Inaugural Peer Excellence Award for this region for her ground-breaking work in Peer Support. “Jan” was in the trenches as an early advocate, and has been a valued member of the Wellspring team for more than a decade. She has worked at both of the CSU sites, and is currently on our SAMHSA-funded program team, working with some of the community’s most challenging and vulnerable clients.
