Elev8 UPDATE!

Informed, engaged parents help create better schools

elev8newsletterIt has been a whirlwind year of change and improvement for Elev8 Baltimore. As we head into our sixth academic year, Elev8 Baltimore is serving more families, supporting more programming and is more sustainable than ever before.

Most obviously, we have a new home: Humanim, Inc., a nonprofit recognized throughout Maryland and around the region for its work to improve communities and individual lives. Humanim’s support will help provide an infrastructure from which our initiative will greatly benefit. And our successful, school-based programming is an excellent complement to Humanim’s array of human services.

We also successfully obtained significant federal funding this year, which is crucial to our sustainability. These renewable, multi-year grants and accompanying partnerships—with AmeriCorps and 21st Century Community Learning Centers—allow us to strengthen our programming, bringing rigor, accountability and more trained volunteers and certified teachers to our afterschool and summer programs.

Together we FINISH.

Humanim's Day Service Program in Howard County has partnered with Athletes Serving Athletes (ASA), a non-profit organization that offers innovative athletic training, supportive mentor relationships, and mainstream athletic events for athletes living with disabilities. Once a week, two ASA volunteers run with both staff and consumers, getting us all ready to run our first 5k race sometime in the fall.

The excitement in the athletes face is worth every aching muscle!

Humanim Health Homes program receives CARF Supplemental Accreditation

First provider in Maryland to be recognized by CARF

CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitations Facilities, was at Humanim this week to conduct a supplemental survey of our (new) Health Homes Program—a program that integrates primary healthcare with behavioral healthcare. CARF concluded the survey with no recommendations or consultations. Humanim's participation is one, of just two agencies, accredited by CARF in Maryland.

The surveyor commented that “this is a wonderful program and that the professional staff are a testament to why the program is so successful.” Most importantly, the clients that were interviewed were able to clearly show what a positive impact this program is having on their lives – and at the end of the day, that is what it is all about.
