                                  Pause for some positivity!

         We asked our staff to share some positivity and gratitude and wow, did you all
         deliver! Thank you to everyone for sharing these wonderful acts of kindness! Keep
         on sending them and we'll do this every week!



                              Shout out to Alene Candles of New Albany for creating face
                              shields! We received 30 shields for direct support professionals
                              and are very thankful!- Brandi Body

                              Emmanuel Osei, Juliet Ofori, and Christabel from Prina Health
                              Care have done a super job with one of the individuals on my
                              caseload. We are all adjusting to the stay at home order and social
                              distancing, which is not always easy. The people on our caseloads
                              are no exception. Emmanuel, Juliet and Christabel have gone
                              above and beyond to help out one of my individuals and her
              family! You guys are awesome! -Robin Bussey

              I would like to recognize Meagan Withrow for helping other providers during this
              crazy situation. She shared with us individuals that would make masks so we could
              protect our frontline staff. She continued to research and found a company that was
              making face shields and again shared this information. We feel better protected
              because of her. She is awesome! Shout out to Brandi Body who continues to
              share her amazing smile during this difficult time. Who would of thought someone
              could bring so much happiness by delivering disinfectant, hand sanitizer and toilet
              paper? Thank you and the county board. -Becky Hamilton, Licking County Director
              Consumer Support Services

              Many thanks to Amanda Wilbur for her genuine care and follow up regarding those
              she supports. Challenges pop up but they're so much easier to deal with when the
              whole team steps up to support all involved. -Meagan Withrow, Associate Director,
              Newark Resident Homes

              To Tina Angeletti and all those at Licking Memorial Health Systems who have
