Communicare is pleased to partner with several entities throughout our region in order to enhance the services that we offer. Our collaboration with Hardin Memorial Hospital, the Lifespring Unit, has decreased the number of people who must travel to Central State Hospital to receive care. This unit was recently awarded the "Heroes in the Fight" award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
Communicare works closely with the ARCs in each county to improve the quality of our developmental disabilities programs. ARCs are involved in our day programs and residential programs. They are essential in planning activities and outings for our consumers and assist us in our transportation needs.
Local businesses collaborate with us to provide contract work through our workshop facilities. Developmentally disabled consumers work to package special holiday sets, sort small items, bale boxes for recycling, etc. The contracts vary from county to county.
