Sending out a call for help - very easy to help feed those in need. Our supply of peanut butter is really running low. If you are able to buy a few small jars of peanut butter and donate to our Food Pantry - it would be appreciated. We average over 1,000 families a month through the pantry and each family gets a jar of peanut butter, so we are always needing peanut butter. It can be dropped off Monday through Saturday from 9 - 12 at 292 Center Ctreet - the Food Pantry! Thanks!!!

With the expected dangerously cold weather this week, we are working with our partners at Love Chapel and Centerstone to keep our homeless neighbors safe. Brighter Days has acquired more cots and mats and is prepared to turn away no one because of capacity. They are also arranging for dinner to be provided each evening, so the folks don't have to venture out to the hot meal sites. Tuesday through Thursday, Columbus Township will also be providing transportation each morning and evening between Brighter Days and the new Community Engagement Center. This week, if you see someone outside with nowhere to go during the day (9 a.m. - 6 p.m.), please bring them to 1951 McKinley. If you encounter them during the night (6 p.m. - 9 a.m), please bring them to 421 South Mapleton. We will keep them warm and feed them.

Two-thirds of fatal fires involve a home that does not have working smoke alarms. We want to help change that statistic. The State Fire Marshal is providing FREE smoke alarms all across Indiana. There are regular alarms, and special dual-alert alarms for the deaf or hard-of-hearing. The smoke alarms have to be installed by the fire department, so this Spring that's exactly what we'll be doing! If you (or someone you know) need smoke alarms in your house, click on the link, fill out the form, and we'll contact you! Please SHARE so we can help as many people as possible!

Big shout out to the staff and volunteers today at Brighter Days! When the weather and travel restrictions interfered with Plan A to keep the homeless in our community safe and warm, (use the Community Engagement Center during the day), they quickly and agilely moved to Plan B (shelter in place). That required staff to stay over shift, volunteers to prepare a full lunch, and a lot of extra logistics. Thanks for your hard work, and a job well done!

01/20/2019

Because of the weather and the travel advisory “Warning”, all those needing shelter today will be assisted all day at Brighter Days at 421 South Mapleton. The Community Engagement Center will not be opening. If you see anyone needing shelter, please bring them to BD at 421 South Mapleton.

Volunteers of America to open addiction treatment center
for pregnant women and mothers in Columbus

COLUMBUS, IN – (August 28, 2018) Columbus will have a new addiction treatment option for pregnant women and mothers with children when Volunteers of America Indiana opens Fresh Start Recovery Center by early 2019.

Volunteers of America Indiana (VOAIN) today announced the purchase of the building at 703 Washington Street to house the facility. The Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority (IHCDA) financed the $875,000 purchase as part of its $1.2M loan that will also allow for renovation needs. Columbus Regional Health Foundation will provide $200,000 of additional funding.

The 23-bed residential facility will provide addiction treatment for expectant women and mothers with up to two children under the age of five.

“Many treatment programs separate mothers from their children, which interrupts the bonding between them. By offering a home-like environment, Fresh Start Recovery Center provides the stable foundation for women to successfully address their addiction-related disorders while also caring for their children,” said John von Arx III, president and CEO of Volunteers of America Indiana.

The Columbus location will expand the Fresh Start program that VOAIN began in Indianapolis in 2015, followed by Winchester House, in Winchester, in June of this year. An Evansville center will open next year as well.

“Southern Indiana is within the nation’s epicenter for opioid abuse, and Columbus and Bartholomew County experience the devastation in lives lost, property crime, unemployment, health care costs, and broken families,” said Columbus Mayor James Lienhoop. “We look forward to our collaboration with VOA Indiana to strengthen local families and our community.”

“Columbus Regional Health, with support from the CRH Foundation, is pleased to assist Volunteers of America Indiana in bringing these important intervention and care services to our community. The Fresh Start Recovery Center alleviates the burden of finding safe, stable housing while keeping mothers and their children together during the recovery process,” said Columbus Regional Health President Jim Bickel.

Columbus was chosen as an expansion location for the Fresh Start Recovery Center in response to the rise in opioid-related overdoses and the number of children in foster care in the area. Program services are funded by the Department of Child Services. “I am so excited to learn that this project is moving forward,” said Dr. Rachel Reed of OB/GYN Associates in Columbus. “We will now have a resource in our community that will help save lives of moms and their unborn babies.”

Jacob Sipe, executive director of the Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority, said, “The State of Indiana is committed to working with VOA and the City of Columbus to provide supportive housing to mothers struggling with drug addiction. By helping support mothers in their recovery, these new centers will also help to reduce the number of babies born with addiction disorders.”
