For Immediate Release

Staunton Farms Foundation to Fund The Open Door Crisis Unit Technology Upgrade In Response to Covid-19.

          The Staunton Farms Foundation recently awarded a grant to The Open Door of Indiana, PA’s Crisis Unit a grant for $25,800 to expand the technological capabilities of the crisis unit. In these unprecedented times, it is more apparent than possibly ever the need to communicate with workers both in and out of the office to provide the best possible care to those most vulnerable populations. With this upgrade, all of our crisis workers will be able to access consumer files in a swift and secure manner, and make updates in real time to be seen by all staff. Crisis workers will stay more connected with each other out in the field, at home, or in the office; and provide the best possible care to consumers in Armstrong and Indiana Counties in an ever-changing environment. From homes to hospitals, providing our consumers who may be feeling anxious, depressed, suicidal, or just need some help getting through these uncertain and trying times with efficient and expanded access to interventions, resources, and referrals will be a positive benefit to our community, families, and friends. This would not have been possible without the generosity of the Staunton Farms Foundation, and we thank them for helping and allowing us to continue top quality care and service to the people of Armstrong and Indiana Crisis. Thank you Staunton Farm Foundation!
