Every year around this time, the phone starts ringing at Gibault with people asking, "What do the children want for Christmas this year?"
Gibault Care received an award in the amount of $2,299.98 for the purchase of iPads for McGivney Health Care Center. The project was funded by the Indiana State Department of Health as part of the Civil Money Penalty (CMP) Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Communicative Technology Project. McGivney will use the iPads for telehealth appointments to protect our at-risk patients.
Gibault is pleased to announce a sponsorship award in the amount of $1,500 for Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Training from Old National Bank. CIT is an innovative first-responder national model of police-based crisis intervention with community mental health care and advocacy partnerships. The goal of the program is to bring together key dedicated individuals that have an investment in the community and the CIT program. The purpose of forming this partnership is to improve responses to people in crisis and increase officer safety. The local CIT is a partnership between Gibault, Indiana State University, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Hamilton Center, Regional Hospital, Mental Health America, Indiana State University Police Department, and the Terre Haute Police Department. Thank you Old National Bank for investing in the health and safety of our community!
We are excited that Bombas has continued as a Giving Partner with Gibault Children’s Services! Bombas recently delivered a large quantity of socks for our children in residence. This is an amazing donation since the majority of children arrive with limited clothing. With the generosity of the Bombas partnership, we can ensure that our kids are covered from head to toe!
