Agency hosted supports

Reach Out Program

Description: The Reach-Out program is designed to connect you with a safe and supportive thought partner, called a “Staff Support Ally,” to process and/or provide guidance and support. It is not meant to be therapy or for crisis situations, but the protocol for conversations is solution-focused. It is meant to be a short-term collaboration with a colleague, who has mental health training, to help provide support and find the right resources for you. The process is confidential, not only by design but by the professional ethics of each of our five trained allies.

How to Access: Reach out to any of our Staff Support Allies and request a meeting by sending a Google calendar invitation. Invitations should be identified as “Internal Coaching” and may remain private if desired.

Internal Coaching Program

Description: The purpose of the Internal Coaching Program is to connect you with a CRAEA coach with advanced training and experience in the INspired Leadership coaching model who can provide confidential support. Coaches focus on helping staff members work through challenging personal and/or professional situations, process their own energy/thinking, and self-identify forward-moving actions to ensure better results for both themselves and those the agency serves.

How to Access: Reach out to any of the internal coaches and request a meeting by sending a Google calendar invitation. Invitations should be identified as “Internal Coaching” and may remain private if desired.
