    CEO Greg Logemann Invites the Public to “Stay Tuned” for Exciting Changes…

    CHILTON, WI, October 21, 2013/24-­‐7PressRelease/ -­‐-­‐
    Earlier this year New Hope Center revealed a new logo to symbolize the “Shape of Things to Come.” The motivation behind the new look is only a part of a larger public awareness campaign. Greg Logemann, CEO of NHC described the challenge:

    Our first priority is to ensure that the local community understands teh values, not just the full range of services NHC provides, but also its ideological mission of creating independence.

    NHC is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1965 as an activity center and sheltered workshop for individuals with intellectual, developmental  and physical  disabilities.  It grew to include job placement services, adult day services, and transportation services. In 2008, NHC merged with another nonprofit organization  that provided  residential services in  Calumet County named  “Roads to  Freedom.” Since that merger, NHC has grown to serve over 150 people annually.

    NHC works with local industry by offering competitively priced small assembly, re-­‐work, labeling, and  packaging through their fulfillment center located o Manhattan Street. This service not only helps local business but also provides real paychecks for over 50 individuals. Through their Supported Employment Services, NHC partners with business and the Division of  Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR)  in matching willing individuals and employers with great job opportunities.

    NHC provides professionally structured programing for individuals through their Adult Day services. Designed to stimulate and enrich, more than 20 individuals with a wide range of needs benefit from this Monday through Friday service.

    Logemann stated that, many  local people have no idea that over half of NHC’s professional staff are working to support individuals to live as independently as possible through their Residential Services.

    Unlike most “care models”, NHC tries to hire individuals with a natural ability to teach and coach. We think this sets us apart as a service provider. We seek employees who can influence others toward greater levels of empowerment and self-determination.

    In conjunction with their new logo, NHC released the first of two short videos paid for in part by the Chilton  Area Community Foundation. The video  titled  “More Than  You  Think” can  be seen  on their website www.newhopeinc.org.

    Logemann invites the public to “stay tuned” to NHC in the days and months to come.

    NHC has a lot of very exciting things going on! In spite of enormous changes in the economy, public policy, an changing demographics, NHC expects to prove to the world how investment in individual lives gives us all new hope.

    Instructors Trained Through SAC Grant Educate Staff, Reinforces Mindset

    Caregivers working with disabled individuals do more than just provide personal cares and distribute pills. They help build a life – and not every moment is easy. Challenging behaviors, something New Hope Center is quite familiar with, can make shifts difficult and unpleasant if you are not properly trained to handle such a situation. Last year, The Community Foundation of Fox Valley’s SAC Grant for Developmental Disabilities contributed $4,000 to New Hope Center to provide three key personnel with the necessary training to become instructors of the Mandt System; a method of responding to behavior that focuses on dignity and respect. The first group of staff to be trained recently completed their training. 

    Participating staff agreed the training was not only worthwhile for them, but for the organization as a whole. The philosophy provides de-­‐escalation techniques as well as guidelines for daily interaction that help prevent potential incidents. Advocating rapport-­‐based influence over control, the Mandt approach encourages building relationships and familiarity with clients. 

    New Hope Center works with a number of individuals with varying temperaments, and having the proper training creates value within the employee and maximizes safety for clients. Recognizing that the only factor one can control is how one reacts to a situation was an important revelation to participants. Creating a routine of peaceful interaction lays the groundwork for quicker de-­‐escalation or, ideally, total avoidance of a challenging situation.

    The SAC grant helped further their mission of providing the highest quality services to New Hope Center members.

    New Hope Center is a nonprofit organization that provides employment, residential, day and transportation services to disabled adults in Calumet County. Their mission is to provide meaningful and quality services to individuals with disabilities so that they may meet their individual goals and improve their quality of life within the community.

    SAC Grant Provides Key Staff At New Hope Center With Mandt Instructor Certification

    Caring for individuals with disabilities is a complicated job. They have a wide range of needs that go beyond personal cares, medication administration and coaching. Their emotional and behavioral needs are also something service providers must be prepared to encounter and support. In particular, handling challenging behaviors requires proper training. Having that training enables service providers to administer higher quality care for a broader spectrum of individuals.

    The Community Foundation of Fox Valley’s SAC Grant for Developmental Disabilities contributed $4,000 to New Hope Center, who sent three key personnel to Menomonee Falls, WI for a 5 day Mandt System training. The Mandt approach not only prepares one for challenging behavior, but also provides methods of interacting on a daily basis to prevent potential incidents.

    Supported Apartment Manager Eleanor Hilton had  “a great and informative experience.” She reflects on her experience warmly, indicating that “the Mandt philosophy follows the golden ruleundefinedto treat family, coworkers, clients, everyone – with dignity and respect.”

    “It reaffirms our current practices and I’m excited to inspire people with my newfound knowledge as a certified Mandt trainer,” says Chilton Group Home Manager John Salm.

    CEO Greg Logemann, also now a Mandt instructor, praised the training’s focus on influence rather than coercion. “Its nice to see a nationally accredited program like Mandt affirm many of the same values NHC teaches – specifically the power of ‘relationships’”. 

    The SAC grant helped further their mission of providing the highest quality services to New Hope Center members.
