During a pandemic State of Emergency, it is necessary for CRSI adjust our policies and procedures to meet the needs of individuals we serve, our employees, and comply with changes in federal, state, and local regulations. All business operations must shift to ensuring the health and safety of our individuals served, employees, and the community-at-large.
The procedures listed below are the amendments to CRSI policies that will be in effect during this time. Due to the rapid changes presented with this unprecedented pandemic, it may be necessary to temporarily implement emergency procedures and alter any current policy in place. The CRSI Management Team will send these alerts through email as well as posts here on the CRSI website.
Please review the links below for the latest updates effective 03/31/2020.

The federal government would track the number of direct support professionals for the first time ever under a new proposal designed to help address a shortage of workers to assist people with disabilities.
A bipartisan bill introduced in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives on Monday would change the way that the government categorizes direct support professionals.
Currently, these workers are lumped in with home health care aides in the system used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics to monitor workforce trends. Advocates say that category is far too broad and leads to a lack of reliable information about how many people across the nation are employed as direct support professionals and where more are needed.
Joe, Jill, Eddie, Justin, & Michele from Van Wert County participated in "Bowl for Honor" on Saturday, Feb. 29th. This was an event to raise funds for the Flag City Honor Flight.
Flag City Honor Flight is a hub of the National Honor Flight Network, serving Veterans of Findlay, Hancock County and surrounding areas. Each hub independently plans, raises funds and transports American Veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit their war memorials.
Flag City Honor Flight’s annual flight takes 80 or more Veterans to Washington at no cost to the Veterans. The organization relies on charitable funding to support the extensive logistics and expenses involved in creating this experience for these special honorees.
