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.
