Orion Family Services was recently awarded a Safety Services contract with Dane County in January 2022 which expands upon the organization’s current Safety Services work in Green and Jefferson counties. Orion has been informally providing Safety Services to Dane County since the middle of last year and the contract has made things official. Community Services Program Manager Samantha Benson provided feedback on implementing the program:
“The current work we have done in Green and Jefferson counties have shown what quality services we provide which helped us secure this contract with Dane County. I’m super excited to work alongside the case managers at Dane County with our experience to assist them in writing good service plans and getting the best out of the services we provide. Recently, one of the Dane County case managers asked for our input in writing a safety plan and I think that shows how much they value our knowledge.”Samantha Benson, Community Services Program Manager
Orion will be giving an upcoming presentation to Dane County assessment and ongoing workers to learn more about creating and implementing quality safety plans along with providing examples of how to utilize Orion’s services.
