Trunk or Treat Brings Fun to Families of CCHS Staff
This Halloween, we hosted a Trunk or Treat night for the families of our staff. There were games and activities, and of course, lots of candy!
Here are some highlights from the event:
Inspire Joy During This Season of Giving
It’s that time of year again!
The holiday season is upon us and you may be thinking about all the wonderful festivities that await; holiday parties, spending time with friends and family, sharing laughs around the table while enjoying your favorite meals, and exchanging gifts.
But, for many of the 685 individuals with disabilities we support, the holiday season can be especially lonely and cheer can be hard to find. Especially since most are living on a fixed income, and often can’t afford some of the simple things we often take for granted.
That is why we are reaching out to you today to ask for your support. With your help, we can make sure no one is forgotten this holiday season.
Your contribution of just $50 or any amount will provide a wonderful holiday meal and gifts for an individual that are sure to bring a smile to their face. In return, you will receive the gift of knowing you’ve inspired someone’s life journey with your generosity.
It’s the season of giving, so please open your heart and your wallet, and join hands with the staff, volunteers, and supporters of Columbus Center for Human Services and Be A Holiday Hero!
They are counting on us, and we are counting on you. Together, we can make the magic of the holidays shine through!

An Update on Quality Improvement:
Thanks to everyone who responded to last month’s Satisfaction Survey! In October, the focus for Quality Improvement was on Human Resources at CCHS!
The highest ratings given by staff were for HR’s Professionalism (A-). Ratings for Orientation Training & On-The-Job (OTJ) Training were included in this review, with the OTJ Training receiving lower ratings, but still a solid B.
The lowest overall ratings were from Park West Administration and the highest ratings were from SCL Administration! On average, staff gave the HR Department B+ ratings for their services, which earns them both the CCHS High Quality Medal and the Plays Well with Others Ribbon!
Thanks again for your survey participation… and thanks to the HR Department for treating your co-workers with Professionalism!
- Craig Gladwell, Director of Quality Improvement
