Hands of Hope set to receive over a Million Dollars in funding over the next 5 years from CDC Grant

Marion, IN – April 25, 2023 Hands of Hope, in partnership with the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ICADV), has been awarded over a million dollars in funding as part of a five-year project from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for the DELTA AHEAD project to provide community level prevention strategies.

For Hands of Hope’s Director Linda Wilk, and ICADV staff, this is the second time partnering together to provide a comprehensive community prevention initiative. From 2013 to 2018, there were many successful local and state initiatives completed as part of a grant funded project known as, Delta Focus.

In describing why Hands of Hope was selected for partnership on the project, Laura Berry, the Executive Director for the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence said, “For the past 25 years, Hands of Hope has been a leader in adopting innovations in the domestic violence field—both with their client services, and their prevention programs. The agency has been nationally recognized for their expertise in community prevention work, and they have the broad stakeholder trust and support that are essential for success in this work.”

ICADV will partner with Hands of Hope to implement prevention initiatives including supporting fatherhood engagement programs, promoting workplace policies that support families’ financial stability, and investing in the development of greenspaces for community recreation. The team will engage in rigorous evaluation across all project activities to contribute to the national evidence base for effective prevention strategies. 

“I am excited to have a second opportunity to partner with ICADV and the CDC to provide a comprehensive community approach to eliminating domestic violence,” stated Linda Wilk, Hands of Hope Director. “I am anxious to build on our success of before and initiate new partnerships with this five-year plan,” Wilk continued.

In addition, Hands of Hope will be partnering with the Minority Health Coalition of Grant County, Thriving Grant County Thriving Mill Township, Taylor University Public Health Department, Marion Public Library, College Wesleyan Church, Hope House, Indiana Wesleyan University, Boys and Girls Club of Grant County, City of Marion, Greater Grant County, as well as various other partners as the initiatives unfold.

The CDC encourages the adoption of community-level strategies, as research shows, these efforts can have the greatest and most sustainable impacts in preventing multiple forms of violence, across the lifespan.

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.
