EBO "MASTERCLASS" Changed The Game For This Organization

"Historically our agency faced three challenges, time, money, and size. Dedicating staff time to plan, implement, and monitor all the activities that go along with becoming evidence-based was an obvious challenge for any agency. Having the financial means to dedicate to the processes,  goes without saying. Finally, maintaining offices miles apart added additional challenges. During this time, our state reorganized the mental health systems.
 
Becoming a EBO has benefited us in numerous ways. We've overcome challenges by using our strategic plan. Our mission and vision (from EBP Action Plan) keep us focused on realistic and achievable activities. Most importantly, as agency leadership we are committed to being an evidence-based organization. It has helped us plan and sustain existing programs. It has also empowered us with successful grant writing, building a donor base for fund development, and in recruiting and hiring qualified staff. 
 
Most importantly though, we have seen successful outcomes for our clients and their families. It is exciting to hear our staff now talk about success stories with their clients, interest in new training opportunities, and future programs and services related to emerging research and best practices.
 
We will continue to grow in terms of the number of clients served, continue to train staff in new evidence-based programs and services, as well as, expand services into additional locations. We are well-positioned to handle changes related to Medicaid expansion, the ACA, and other unknowns related to behavioral health care. We know that the use of technology and social media will continue to influence how we do business and provide services. As an agency, we want to continue to build our capacity in using data and outcomes to guide and inform decision-making.
 
This program is an exciting journey and we cannot imagine providing services any other way! We continue to learn and challenge ourselves to be better. Please consider joining us in this effort!"

K. Scorza, Seasons Center

"It has helped us with successful grant writing, building a donor base for fund development, and in recruiting and hiring qualified staff. It has benefited our organization by “clearly” signaling to those we work with what our values are and what is required if you collaborate with us. We have seen successful outcomes for our clients and their families. It is exciting to hear our staff now talk about success stories with their clients, interest in new training opportunities, and future programs and services related to emerging research and best practices."

J. Keene, San Mateo Probation

"I would say that helping to change the “culture” in our county about service delivery has been our most successful accomplishment. I would simply like to express my sincere appreciation to Joyfields Institute. With their help, we have raised the level of service to those we supervise by providing better rehabilitative opportunities, increasing public safety, and accountability to victims. it has allowed our department to set a standard in our county for policy development and program procurement. The expectation of all those we work with is that EBP must be a part of our collaboration. It has also raised our standing with our Board of Supervisors and Law Enforcement partners."
