The Chase Home has received a $6,409 grant from Cogswell Benevolent Trust to support cloud-based staff training to meet state-mandated certification and licensure requirements. “Covid made in-person training very difficult, which further emphasized the importance of training that can be accessed by anyone on our staff anywhere,” said Meme Wheeler, executive director at The Chase Home.
Customizable based on skill and need, these trainings will include everything from compliance and continuing education to management and leadership. “It will be incredibly helpful for us and to be able to individualize the training offered on the platform as well as upload our own agency-specific videos,” added Wheeler.
Expressing appreciation to Cogswell Benevolent Trust for the investment, Wheeler said the grant award supports The Chase Home’s broader objective to continue to invest in staff. “Building their knowledge, their skills, and supporting them is crucial for their development and the health and safety of our kids,” she said. “This grant from the Cogswell Benevolent Trust is very impactful.”
