The statewide Comprehensive Case Management and Employment Program (CCMEP), offered locally by OhioMeansJobs Champaign County (OMJCC), helps clients, ages 14-24, get the education, training and additional support they need to enter the workforce and break free of the poverty cycle, explains Beth McFann, CCMEP case manager and career coach at OMJCC, which is located in Suite J100 of the Champaign County Community Center, 1512 U.S. 68, Urbana.
OMJCC is part of the Champaign County Department of Job and Family Services (CCDJFS).
“Some of the young people I serve have a hard time seeing beyond their current situation.,” McFann says. “So, I help them discover the career and training options available to them. I help get them in the mindset to plan for their future.”
Amy Sherman, OMJCC workforce supervisor, adds, “Our goal is to reach teens and young adults, to address their barriers in life when they’re still young, so they can live the rest of their lives self-sufficiently and not have to rely on assistance.”
“Every person has different needs,” McFann says. CCMEP services include:
Stacy Cox, director of CCDJFS/OMJCC, recommends anyone working with youth to contact OMJCC to learn more about CCMEP, so they can refer people they know who could benefit from the program. For information on CCMEP, call Beth McFann, at 937-484-1500, ext. 2701, or the OMJCC, at 937-484-1581.

Drug and Alcohol Therapy: Merv is working with TCN Behavioral Health to provide a satellite office to provide therapy in Mechanicsburg one or more days a week. This would remove the transportation barrier that can make it difficult to get enough support during the recovery journey. The public’s access to care is a priority for the MHDAS and Merv’s efforts are greatly appreciated. “I have a real passion for people with substance use disorders,” says Merv. “I don’t only want to give them a ride home from jail. I want a relationship with them. I want to connect them to the things they need to be successful like housing, employment, mentorship, and a church family.” Merv has been very successful with this approach as he has helped people transition from a jail cell, to an apartment, to obtaining their driver’s license, and gaining access to employment, all thanks to his involvement.
What began as a part-time opportunity that grew into a full-time operation. Heidi started this business as a way to make money on the side. With continued growth, she was able to leave her job and operate her Facebook group and business full-time. This year, after 11 years at JWP, Justin was able to resign and run their business full-time. It was then that the two decided it was time to expand into a larger space. The two reached out to the Champaign Economic Partnership and were thrilled to quickly find a space they had previously considered 2 years prior. Heidi said, "This wouldn't be possible without the help and support from their families." They are currently operating their business with the help of their families but hope to hire employees as the business expands.
Currently Hometown Bargains will be open Saturday from 10 am - 5 pm, Sunday from 11 am - 5 pm, Monday 10 am - 5 pm and Tuesday 10 am - 5 pm or while supplies last. They plan to continue online sales through their Facebook page on Wednesdays. Pricing for items in bins makes it easy for shoppers to know what to expect, on Saturdays everything in bins are $7, Sundays are $5, Mondays are $3, and Tuesdays everything in bins are $1. Whole pallets are also available for purchase. Heidi advised that hours are subject to changed as the business continues to grow. Make sure to follow their Facebook page for updates and changes.
Urbana Hospital earns 5-Star rating
“Of all the challenges we faced last year, I couldn’t be prouder of our team, who not only helped us achieve this accolade, but one that I personally dedicate to each of our associates,” said Jamie Houseman, president of Urbana Hospital. “Every member of our team from physicians to nurses to respiratory therapists to our dietary and environmental associates are responsible for the care we provide and this one is for them,” she said.
The ratings published by CMS are designed to help consumers compare hospitals by evaluating safety, quality and patient experiences. CMS updated its Overall Hospital Quality Star Ratings for 2021, assigning ratings of one to five stars to more than 4,500 hospitals nationwide based on their performance across five areas of quality.
Publicly reported on the Medicare.gov website, the Overall Hospital Rating is based on performance on several dozen inpatient and outpatient quality measures that are grouped into five groups – Mortality, Safety of Care, Readmissions, Patient Experience, and Timely and Effective Care. The overall hospital rating is calculated using a summary score from these categories.
The ratings are an extension of recent advancements and achievements within the Springfield market and the greater Urbana community including expanded offerings such as behavioral health, access to primary and specialty care, a new, comprehensive intensive cardiac rehabilitation program that focuses on whole life changes following a cardiac event as well as new facilities such as a sleep lab, lavender rooms to assist associates in times of distress as well as a new Women’s Center (opening July 2021) amongst advancements in imagine and radiology services (Fall 2021).
