  • The Heartland Disaster Recovery Group is seeking individuals and groups to donate their time to families recovering from this year’s flooding.

    Groups interested in long-term volunteer opportunities will be provided with housing, showers, and meals. Groups of 6-8 would be ideal. Volunteer opportunities will be in Wood River and Dannebrog, and include skills such as hanging drywall, flooring, framing, painting and electrical.

    Single day events can also be coordinated for groups ranging in size from 2-25. Projects will be assigned as the number of volunteers and skill levels are identified.

    The Heartland Disaster Recovery Group is a nonprofit established following the March 2019 flooding to coordinate long-term recovery efforts. The mission is to coordinate recovery efforts to bring communities back to a new normal after they have been devastated by disasters in Hall, Hamilton, Howard, and Merrick Counties.

  • Mental Health First Aid
    This 8-hour training course is designed to give you key skills to help someone who is developing a mental health problem or is experiencing a mental health crisis. Just as CPR training helps a layperson without medical training assist an individual following a heart attack, Mental Health First Aid training helps a layperson to identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental health illnesses and addictions. You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. You can help.

    The evidence behind MHFA demonstrates that it makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and builds mental health literacy.

    Youth Mental Health First Aid
    A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them.

    You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self-help care.

    Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.
