1/23MWH Support groups in black resource binderUpdate the MWH support groups (they do not include the incest support group in the binder; maybe type the added info in the binder to make it easier to read through;KABGreat suggestion! This is being updatedYes7/5/18AW
6
1/23Tabbing the black resource binderMaybe add more tabs in areas like Food, Hotlines, and Financial AssistanceKABGreat suggestion! Yes7/10/18AW
7
1/23Black resource binder table of contentsMaybe adding more info to the table of contents would be beneficial (like the MWH support groups and other support groups)KABThis definitely needs to be done! This can be resolved when a more comprehensive overhaul of the entire binder is doneAW
8
1/23Layout of content in the black resource binderIt may be especially beneficial to use a more uniform layout for resources so there is a certain expectation of what we will find in the binder (maybe for counselors it could look like hours, payment type accepted, type of services offered (some of these are listed for some of the counselors, but maybe it would be beneficial to include all of these or more?KABWorking toward reformatting; will update when completed.No; will update when completed.KB
9
1/23Call log (blue binder) listsThe NAIS and MSWCM lists may need updating to put them back into alphabetical order (there are hand-written names at the end)KABThis is not something CI staff does, but I can pass this along!Yes7/5/18AW
10
1/23Resident phone in hallway (by resident sign-in clipboard)Is there any way this could be moved to a more private location? While this is a confidential area, there may be some calls residents don't wish to make/take in front of other residents or staff/volunteers.KABGood question! This seems like something to bring up at our next all-shelter staff meeting! I will get this suggestion to the staff person in charge of thatYes7/11/18AW
11
2/6Resource binder/resource listAn additional resource that may be useful is the Crisis Text Line. This is a similar resource to the Suicide Hotline, but offers texting services instead of calling. Users text "Start" or "Home" to 741-741, and they will be connected with a Crisis Counselor. Disclaimers: the texts are limited to 160 words or less each, and the crisis counselors are volunteers, NOT professionals. More information for this is provided at https://www.crisistextline.org/ . KABThank you for this information! I will be adding this to the resources binderYes7/11AW

3/23Hotlines in Resource BinderLove is Respect 24/7 Talkline (for dating or sexual violence): 1-866-331-9474, or text "Love" to 22522KAB/ Per suggestion of Sam HarrellGreat! I will update the current listYes7/11/18AW
13
3/23Hotlines in Resource BinderNational Eating Disorder Helpline: M-Th 9A-9P & F 9A-5P, 1-800-931-2237KAB/ Per suggestion of Sam HarrellGreat! I will update the current listYes7/11/18AW

16
3/23Financial Assistance in Resource BinderMaking a chart (similar to the therapist list) might be useful. It could display what each of the businesses offers, the places they service, eligibility perhaps, and maybe hours of operation. For the back page, a lot of this information is written out but may still benefit from a more uniform display. The trustees do not show any information beyond the phone number, so I wonder if they are more of a case-by-case basis.KABThis has been added directly following the existing financial assistance sectionYes8/5/18KB
17
3/23Domestic VIolence Victim's Assistance Compensation form in Resource BinderThe website listed for the freefrom quiz (compensation-quiz.freefrom.org) is an invalid link. Has this been taken down? I tried to locate the freeform.org site, but it does not appear to be a domain name of its own either. Is there an updated link we could put in here? Is this page where we could offer the Crime Victim Compensation Fund (http://victimsofcrime.org/help-for-crime-victims/get-help-bulletins-for-crime-victims/crime-victim-compensation)? Or, because of our grants are we not allowed to direct clients to that?KABThis link appears to be working now!Yes8/5/2018KB
18
3/23Support GroupsCould we make a support groups for people who may have been the perpetrator of violence? There is also something to be said about the crossover of people who may have experienced violence who may have also perpetrated violence. KABWe currently refer people to the BIP (in the black resource binder) for these types of services. They are court mandated for the most part, but historically there have been people who have called to join without a mandate.Yes8/10/18KB
19
4/24Black resource binderAdd resources for DV education classes for people court mandated to attend them (like in DCS cases)KABIt is recommended to say that the DCS caseworker they are working with should be able to provide them with that information, and if it feels comfortable they may seek that inforamtion by speaking with that pesron.Yes8/10/18KB
20
6/18Anonymous information boxResidents need an anonymous place to suggest/discuss/complain about things when they don’t feel comfortable talking to staff or volunteers. Exit interviews don’t seem to be filled out bc we know who’s doing them GEWe have found that there is actually a resident suggestion box on the second floor! It is located in the quiet room, with papers for suggestions to be written on! Yes8/10/18KB

6/27Resource binder/resource listEmail Allison (azhoerr@co.monroe.in.us), Clinical Coordinator at the Youth Services Bureau to discuss child and family counseling referrals. I spoke with their Safe Place Coordinator yesterday, and while they do take non-Binkely shelter referrals, their capacity is limited. It seems like their counselors would be a really appropriate fit for parents who call about conflict/violence/stress they're experiencing with children. SHThis would be SO useful to add to our resources! I have emailed Allison, and I will update the resource binder with the information they send!No, will change when updatedKB
22
6/27Resource binder/resource listI think it would be helpful to write out in our CL binder a step-by-step process of what can happen when a youth goes to a Safe Place sign. This is a critical referral for a youth in danger and I think we can best empower youth by giving them accurate and thorough information. Brigitt is the Safe Place Coordinator for Monroe, Greene, & Owen county. You can contact her at bnasby@co.monroe.in.us. SHAwesome suggestion! I have emailed Brigitt and I will update this information once I have received word from them!No, will change when updatedKB
