Ohel Children's Home and Family Services (OHEL) proposes to expand our current service delivery model of comprehensive, trauma-informed and integrated care through the CCHBC Expansion Grant to better serve individuals and families of all ages living with serious mental illness, substance abuse disorders (including opioid), comorbid health conditions and complex social and economic needs in several highly diverse communities throughout Brooklyn. While OHEL already provides the majority of required CCNHC services, this will allow us to further enhance that continuum, building on decades of deep experience and expertise in serving children and families with complex cultural, linguistic and religious needs including children in foster care, individuals in the Orthodox Jewish community, and families with early childhood needs (0-5). We will expand and enhance our services to improve access to care coordination, social services, enhanced SUD treatment including including medication assisted treatment (MAT) and deepen our partnerships to better serve veterans and justice-involved individuals including with the VA of NY/NJ and the Brooklyn DA's Office. Communities like Brooklyn with large proportions of black and brown residents have borne a disproportionate impact of COVID including the health, mental health and economic effects of the pandemic. OHEL has spent the last year adapting and meeting the needs of individuals suffering the mental health effects of COVID including being selected by NYC to provide crisis counseling services and through a wide range of telehealth and telemental health options. OHEL provides a wide range of evidence-based practices in addition to a range of rehabilitative and social services such as supportive housing, pre-vocational supports, personalized recovery-oriented services (PROS), peer support, mobile outreach, and much more. We also recently completed construction on a brand-new building that currently houses a licensed outpatient mental health (<H) clinic AND a medical clinic and urgent care center and has applied for an additional license to provide substance abused disorder (SUD), which is expected this year. This building will house our CCBHC. With this grant, we will increase our total unduplicated individuals served annually from 1,000 to 1,300 by the end of year 2, with a special focus on vulnerable populations including veterans, young children, and individuals living with trauma including those affected by COVID. Brooklyn is home to 2.6 million people. The populations we serve reside in some of Brooklyn's most populous neighborhoods including Midwood, Madison, Flatbush, and Borough Park. Our population mirrors the diversity of the area residents - 37 percent White, 30 percent Black/African American, 19 percent Hispanic/Latino, and 12 percent Asian. OHEL will build on our experience to date to enhance and expand an integrated, coordinated network of mobile crisis, diversion, respite and community supports proven to reduce ED use and divert people to more community-based alternatives. We will increase the number of individuals receiving care coordination and referrals to social services and increase the connection of individuals to primary care.
