Be the Hope

As we face these uncertain times it is important to remember there is always hope and always helpers. Radiant Health is committed to our mission and to be a beacon of hope as we work …

Impact to Radiant Health

COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of our work; an organization that revolves around social interaction, relationships and human contact has all been interrupted. Our operational revenues center on face-to-face time with our clients.

Our team is feeling the pressures of this ‘new’ normal, finding themselves adjusting and tracking to the changes here at Radiant Health and in their personal lives. As stated by Ed Pereria, LCSW at Radiant Health, “In times of crisis the unusual can become the norm…maybe the beginning of many new norms.” And this is the message we are holding onto, change is okay and is paving the way for our next 100 years serving and helping families.

Key Changes

As we embrace this new normal, here are some key changes we have incorporated:

  • Meeting our clients where they are by investing in ZOOM conferencing, a HIPAA compliant software that ensures client confidentiality
  • Enabling our team with technology to promote working from home; this involved a quick inventory of technology and redistribution of those devices
  • Working side-by-side with our partners at the Department of Child Services (DCS) to ensure we are still meeting with the families that need us most
  • Creating and encouraging positive social engagement with the community by creating the series, “Check Up from the Neck Up”
  • Following the telehealth lead and creating mental wellness sessions in a packaged and discounted rate to be rolled out within the next couple of weeks. 

Commitment to Mission

In an environment where abuse and neglect can escalate with children home from school and parents potentially losing and experiencing reduced employment, Radiant Health employees provide eyes on the children in need of services.  Our teams are part of the essential workforce and are on the front lines making sure children and families are safe and well.  The changes we have made all come with the safety and security of our most valuable asset–our employees—in mind. The Board of Directors and Senior Leadership Team have made the commitment to evolve, be creative and find ways to fund the employment of our 60+ employees who execute our mission, to change lives for Good, every single day.

The team and I are diligently following information about support and federal aid opportunities targeted at non-profits of our size.  Understanding these aid opportunities come at a cost, we are weighing all the pros and cons. Our ultimate goal is to ensure Radiant Health continues serving families now and long into the future.

How you can help

You are the Hope of our organization and the best way you can support the children and families served by Radiant Health is to include us in your annual giving. Knowing and understanding the benefits you, as a donor, would receive as a result of the CARES Act, passed on March 27, 2020, provides the foundation for giving that intervenes and prevents child abuse and neglect as well as domestic violence.

Those benefits include:

  • For non-itemizers: you would receive a tax deduction for total charitable contributions of up to $300. This is a $300 deduction off of your income tax. This incentive applies to cash contributions made in 2020 and can be claimed on your 2020 tax forms next year.
  • For itemizers: The CARES Act also lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60 percent of adjusted gross income(AGI) limit and raising it to 100 percent of AGI. For example, if you have an adjusted gross income of $100,000, your deduction limit for that year is 60% or $60,000. Under the CARES Act, this limit grows to 100% or $100,000.
  • Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) for 2020 will be waived.

Note: we are not tax advisors and if you have more in depth questions, please contact your tax professional.

Please consider making a contribution now

Even in times of crisis, our work is so desperately needed and your support is appreciated – now more than ever. A greater number of families need our help as they lose access to jobs and insurance during this public health crisis.  And when the light begins shining to reveal the end of this pandemic, the need to support families will remain and Radiant Health will be here providing the hope families need.  Stay well.

With gratitude,

Lisa A. Dominisse

President/CEO & donor

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

On January 19th, 2023 Grant Blackford Mental Health, Inc. and Family Service Society, Inc. merged to create a bigger, better, and brighter mental health organization called Radiant Health.

We’re excited for you to meet the new us, and to get a chance to help work together on the new you.

How we help.

When you’re in the middle of it, addiction can feel like a dead-end road. We know for certain that it isn’t. Just like any mental health challenge, addiction is an obstacle on our path. And, with some innovation and hardwork, we can work our way around it. On the other side of that obstacle is a bright future with healthy relationships, purpose-driven life, and a profound joy that’s been missing for all too long.

What do we mean?

Like so many things, mental health is passed down through families. Through behaviors, mirroring, and conditioning, we learn so much of what we know from those closest to us. Oftentimes that’s for the better, sometimes it’s not. At Radiant Health, we’re here to help ensure that your family makes purpose and joy as hereditary as any trait you might pass down to future generations. With a bit of hard word, together, we can make joy run in your family. 

What is Better?

Better ≠ perfect. Better means a path of continuous improvement; of evolution. When we focus on getting 1% better, 1% brighter every single day., we’re able to see the joy in the moment, while feeling the pride that comes with taking the reins over your life and working hard on yourself.  Here at Radiant, to focus on your future, we move towards it one achievable step at a time. 

What is Better Care?

When we talk about “brighter, better care” through our specialized services it boils down to 3 simple ideas. First, better care is safer care. Our facilities and staff are trained and equipped to offer safe, secure facilities during any stay. Second, better care is a respect for dignity. We believe in the dignity of every human being and we treat each person with the same level of respect. Finally, better care is the pursuit of purpose. Our treatment is designed with the firm belief that every person has purpose and, through it, finds joy.

What to Expect?

At Radiant Health you can expect a warmth and cheer that are rare in the mental health space. We believe firmly that the commitment to mental health is a commitment to finding purpose, but also discovering joy in the pursuit of it. Walking through our doors is a simple and transparent process. You’ll begin with an initial consultation with our expert staff, developing a blueprint, and taking that first step towards incremental improvement.
