The Importance of Green Space

A lot has been said about the importance of safe, stable and nurturing relationships. The same is true for environments. People thrive and are more likely to live non-violent lives when their environments are nurturing and safe.

That is why Hands of Hope is focusing on green spaces as one of our initiatives through the Delta Ahead grant from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

In the coming months, we will be working with community leaders to turn a blighted and neglected property in the City of Marion into a safe, stable green space for the neighborhood.

As part of this endeavor, Hands of Hope is looking for an experienced greenspace designer to assist in the transformation of this property.

A similar project transformed Barnes Park, located at 6th and E streets, was undertaken in 2017 with collaborative partnerships between the neighborhood association, City of Marion, and Hands of Hope.

The project involves modifying the physical and social environment of a neighborhood that does not currently have a park or community gathering space.

The scope of the project includes conducting listening sessions to understand community needs and preferences as well as designing and engaging an equitable and accessible gathering space based upon the residents’ needs and other features. The greenspace designer will also work with the site developers, DELTA Ahead team, residents and volunteers throughout the design and building of the green space.

Hands of Hope will integrate development strategies focused on promoting connections and deterring violence, drawing on concepts from the field of crime prevention through environmental design. Safety, security, and equitable access to the space is a top priority.

Greenspace designers interested in receiving the full Request for Proposal (RFP) for the Community Greenspace Design Project can reach out to Hands of Hope Director Linda Wilk at lwilk@getradiant.org or 765-934-6301. All proposals will be due by Noon EST, Jan. 12, 2024.

Proposals should include a detailed project plan, relevant experience, three references from clients and budget for your services. Proposals should be emailed to lwilk@getradiant.org or mailed to Hands of Hope Director Linda Wilk at 1652 W. Third St., Marion, IN 46952

Hi there.
We're Radiant Health.

As of January 18, 2023, Grant Blackford Mental Health and Family Services Society, two organizations that merged in April 2022, rebranded under the unified name 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.
