Chad Jensen, executive director of New Opportunities, met with the board to inform them that New Opportunities has been awarded an Emergency Solutions Grant in the amount of $17,650. The grant is for calendar year 2012 and will be split among the seven counties served by New Opportunities: Audubon, Carroll, Calhoun, Dallas, Greene, Guthrie, and Sac.

John Hostetler, executive director of Community & Family Resources/The Richmond Center, met with the board to inform them that The Richmond Center will no longer provide mental health services for Carroll County as of June 30, 2012. Hostetler said the community mental health system is underfunded and CFR/TRC serve eleven counties and that Carroll County would be better served with a local mental health provider. Hostetler has talked to five providers and three have shown an interest in Carroll County. Dawn Mentzer, County CPC, said she heard from Patrick Schmitz, executive director of Plains Area Mental Health Center, and he expressed an interest in providing mental health services for Carroll County. Robin Wilson, a Community Systems Consultant with Iowa DHS, was present and reviewed the RFP process with the board. She said the time frame is very short to put an RFP together, but it will probably be needed as there are not enough local providers. The board will research options and plan further discussion at next week’s meeting.
