In every community we’ve encountered hundreds of service providers offering quality, well-intended and successful programs for youth and families. As a service provider opens up to help youth we often hear the they don’t know how to or who to approach to start receiving referrals.
Case in point – in one particular community SPIRIT identified 127 separate service providers, each offering unique, effective, vetted, funded and effective services to youth. In the courtroom the judge was only sending referrals to 25 service providers. More than 5 on the judge’s list were either closed, at capacity or a 2-hour + bus ride from the youth’s home.
By utilizing the patented referral method SPIRIT has invented the service providers who are the most successful and who are best suited for the youth in question are getting more referrals than ever and the court is reporting more graduations.
The process for service providers is even simpler than ever. An email notice is sent when a referral is made from an authorized account user of SPIRIT. You simply review the case details (all referral & consent forms can be delivered digitally with the referral). Accept the youth and you are off to the races.
SPIRIT can be used to track progress, graduation or failure to complete on each youth and direct communication to the referring agency is available in the system for each referred youth.
Multi and single location service providers alike can see all the youth referred to them from state agencies and use the data to apply for grants, add additional inventory, services, etc. The reporting tools are cutting edge and will provide each service provider with the information needed to continue to run a quality organization.
An exciting new toolset is releasing in beta on August 1! COMPASS allows clients to find and connect with service providers by managing their own experience while providing real-time jurisdiction and funder level reporting functionality. Click here to request more information on COMPASS.
