(Dixon, IL) Sinnissippi Centers has been awarded a grant in the amount of $50,000.00 by the Dr. Louis and Violet Rubin Fund of the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois. The grant will fund an expansion of Sinnissippi’s Ways to Wellness and Recovery program into Ogle County.
“We are very pleased to receive this grant award to fund expansion of Sinnissippi Centers’ Ways to Wellness and Recovery Program,” says Kim James, Director of Healthcare Innovations for Sinnissippi Centers. “We have seen great success with Ways to Wellness and Recovery in Whiteside and Lee Counties in better integrating care between behavioral healthcare and primary healthcare. Now, we will be able to expand those efforts into Ogle County and provide the same services and achieve the same success in providing better care for individuals facing multiple chronic diseases like depression and diabetes,” adds James.
