What I do know, as of now...

Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Back on February 15th I blogged :

"Yesterday they dropped a HUGE bomb on us. FSNO will be closing at the end of April. There will no longer be an agency PERIOD!!! I am floored to say the least."

A quick update:
Our local ADAMH's Board did purchase our building. For now we are still not quite sure what that will mean. We do not know if they will keep our services there or what they have prepared for the building itself. It is licensed as a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Facility. We do know whatever goes there has to match those qualifications.

Now....on to my job:
I have been assured they will be keeping the Information & Referral portion (crisis lines[this is what I do]) and they will be continuing with our mental health assessment that either help a person return home back into the community or being placed in a hospital for help.

What I do know:
I have a job interview on 3/15/18 around 4:30pm for my job that I have currently had for 27 years and 4 months.

What I do know:
I have polished up my resume, I have acquired 4 outstanding references to back me up an I know I'm ready for this next step. The position will be with a Renewed Mind providing the same services I have been doing.

Their benefits are as follows:

emoticon Health, Dental, and Vision insurance available on the day of hire—no waiting periods (full time staff)
emoticonContributions by A Renewed Mind to Health Savings Account (full time staff who enroll in health insurance)
emoticon10 paid holidays (pro-rated for part time)
emoticonVacation time (3-5 weeks per year) that accrues upon hire (full time staff)
emoticon13 sick/personal days (8 sick/5 personal) (pro-rated for part time)
emoticonStudent Loan Assistance Program—receive 2% up to $1,000.00 per fiscal year toward your outstanding student loans every year you work at A Renewed Mind (full time staff)
emoticon401K plan—with A Renewed Mind matching contributions up to 4% after 1 year of employment

emoticonEAP benefits
emoticonCell phone reimbursement for use of personal cell phone for business use (full & part time staff; certain positions qualify)
emoticonMileage reimbursement
emoticonWellness reimbursement for services- maximum reimbursement of $200 per fiscal year (full time staff)

Many of these benefits are what I currently have where I am. Many are new, some I won't use. All in all, I'm feeling better about things. I keep trying to tell myself they need me since I'm the only one that knows what I do, but I also know everyone is replaceable, they'd just have a very hard time of it if they didn't hire me emoticon

I hope everyone is having a great day. The emoticon is shining, it's my day off and I've gotten some heavy duty cleaning done so far. emoticon Donna
