                        “If It Isn’t Documented – It Didn’t Happen”
   Journaling or keeping a diary is a common practice for many people. Genesis staff must do much the same thing every day

                                        Iowa is strongly encouraging community providers to change to electronic

                                           It will cost more than $150,000 for Genesis to transition to electronic documentation at
                                                      locations.                                            inclu

                                           modems, installation fees, and internet access for all of our homes, work centers and
                                           offices that do not yet have internet access.

                                             To make this project a reality, a fundraising campaign was initiated at the beginning
                                           of the year and will continue throughout the year. Several grants have been submitted
                                                       entities,

   In addition to satisfying government funders and ensuring continued
 funding for those receiving Genesis services, the electronic system will
 speed up the documentation process relievrelieving some of the stress
 placed on our staff and allowing them to devote more time to fulfilling
 our mission to provide opportunities and support for some of the most
 vulnerable people in our communities.

                                         Work Services Update
Indianola – In addition to the Perry Health Care Center and the Gowrie Care Center, Genesis Textile Services has taken
on laundry contracts for five more nursing homes in the Signature Care Center LLC group. The distance between
Indianola and these new facilities located in Estherville, Lake Park, Primghar, Remson, and Sutherland has necessitated
some creative pickup and delivery scheduling, another truck, and another driver. The additional personal care laundry
has also required some creative scheduling. Because this type of laundry requires more dryer time than the laundry can
accommodate in a regular week, laundry hours have been expanded to 7:00 am to 8:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday and Friday with 7:00 to 5:00 hours on Thursday and Saturday and an 8:00 to 2:00 shift on Sunday. To help
alleviate the manpower shortage, the Christian Opportunity Center (COC) in Indianola – also a provider of services for
people with disabilities – is supplying a six person work crew for the Saturday shift.

Jefferson – Last October Jefferson Work Services began a new custodial contract with the Perry Health Care Center.
Monday through Friday, a Work Services supervisor and three custodial workers clean at the center from 8:00 am to 2:30
pm. The rotating crew is in charge of all cleaning duties. To date, nine individuals have had the opportunity to participate
in this project. The crew recently received praise from Linda Prouty, the Health Center Administrator, for their “hard work,
elbow grease and commitment to ensuring that attention to detail occurred in completion of our projects”. The custodial
crew assisted the facility staff in identifying environmental related problem areas, resolving those areas and keeping them
at the benchmark of compliance.         Other new custodial contracts include Jefferson City Hall and the City Maintenance
building.
  At the work center in Jefferson, over 10,000 transmissions have been boxed and sent out since the beginning of the
year. This was a big push to meet Electrolux Home Products scheduled date to get all products shipped from their
Jefferson location after the plant officially closed in January.

Boone – The Boone Custodial crew has received a certificate of achievement from NISH for outstanding performance of
its Ability One Program contract at Camp Dodge. NISH is a national nonprofit agency whose mission is to create
employment opportunities for people with severe disabilities. NISH assists in securing Federal contracts for a network of
community-based, nonprofit agencies. Providing employment opportunities to more than 40,000 people, the AbilityOne
Program is the largest single source of employment in the United States for people who have severe disabilities.

Storm Lake WS – Can and bottle volume at the Redemption Center has already gone up to what it usually is in the
summer due primarily to the county landfill’s decision to discontinue can and bottle reclamation and redemption at their
site. Almost a half million beverage containers were processed in January. The Bedel Brothers Printing Department is
now in the process of printing their largest, one-customer order ever. Thirty thousand rain gauges are being printed for
Staples Promotional Products.


                                           WS Outcome Goals
                                                 Each year Genesis Development sets specific outcome goals for each of
                                                 the Genesis services. These goals are developed through staff input and
                                                 feedback from stakeholder focus groups including those receiving
                                                 services, their families, case managers, etc. The Work Services goal for
                                                 2011 is to increase training opportunities for those enrolled in the
                                                 program. This will be done by having each of the four Genesis sites that
                                                 have work centers develop a one-hour training program and present it at
                                                 each of the other work center sites. The first of those was an Empathy
                                                 training presented by the Storm Lake staff to those in the Work Services
                                                 program in Jefferson. To help them better understand what it’s like to
                                                 live and work with
                                                 another           person’s
                                                 disability,       Empathy
                                                 Stations were set up
                                                 throughout the building
that participants rotated through. One station demonstrated fine motor
skills problems by having the participants wear heavy gloves to perform a
series of tasks. A wheelchair obstacle course was set up to help better
understand those challenges. Walking the halls with popcorn in one’s
shoes simulates balance and walking problems. The vision impaired
station was on the recycling sort line where they wore safety glasses with
distorted lenses. And in the hearing impaired station directions were all
given in a whispered voice. Future trainings will include Teambuilding,
Employment Expectations/ Quality in the Workplace, and Sexual
Harassment.
                         Steve Raymond Leaves Genesis Board
  Genesis CEO, Terry Johnson, presented a commemorative
plaque to Steve Raymond of Winterset at the end of his service
on the Genesis Board of Directors. Steve completed his first
three-year term in June 2010 at the end of our fiscal year. When
he decided not to run for another term on the Madison County
Board of Supervisors, he also chose to resign from some of the
other boards on which he was serving and left the Genesis
Board in December.
  Many changes took place at Genesis while Steve was on the
Board. Three new group homes were opened in Indianola and
our commercial laundry there expanded from one major contract
with the Des Moines Marriott Downtown to twenty clients being
served today, including the Pella Regional Health Center,
USDA, Courtyard Marriott, the Boone County Hospital and the
Perry Health Care Center. Our offices in Jefferson, Vinton, Belle
Plaine, Indianola, and Boone all moved to new locations. Storm
Lake remodeled their building to accommodate a larger
Discovery program, and Jefferson and Boone both added Discovery to their list of services. Storm Lake entered into a
partnership with Jack Links to provide an on-site work crew for that company in Laurens and added the Bedel Brothers
Printing Department that produces screen printed promotional items for distribution throughout the US and Canada. The
school-to-work program was started in the Boone and Jefferson-Scranton High Schools. Genesis in Boone took over
provision of services to former Good Connections Inc clients when that organization closed its doors, which led to seven
more group homes in Boone and a recycling transfer station. The Genesis Mental Health Services office was opened in
the Perry Hospital with a satellite office in Waukee which was later moved to Adel. Services in eastern Iowa expanded
into Tama and Poweshiek counties with the addition of a residential care facility north of Toledo. The Genesis Custodial
Training Program began at Camp Dodge. And Genesis received its tenth 3-year CARF award. During his term on the
board, Steve served as President in FY2010 and helped guide Genesis through some challenging times as the economy
struggled and Genesis budgets were strained.
   The staff of Genesis would like to wish Steve well and thank him for his time, skills and dedication to Genesis and the
people we serve.

                                                   Wanda Henrichs began working with people with disabilities in
                                                   February of 1996 for the Buena Vista Work Activities Center (BVWAC)
                                                   in Storm Lake. In 1998 that agency became part of Genesis
                                                   Development. Her first duties were at the Maywood home as an
                                                   overnight staff until a daytime position was available. For the past ten
                                                   years Wanda has been the Team Leader at the Maywood home. “I
                                                   enjoy the individual personalities of the people we serve and of our
                                                   staff,” said Wanda. “I especially like teaching hands-on daily living
                                                   skills to those living in our homes.”




                                           Five-Year Milestones
                           Genesis commemorates five-year anniversaries for all staff members.
                                The following have reached a milestone since December.

        Wanda Henrichs, Storm Lake – 15 years                        Tammy Johns, Boone – 5 years
        Deb Anderson, Storm Lake – 10 years                          Dale Carver, Storm Lake – 5 years
        Connie Burgart, Jefferson – 10 years                         John England, Winterset – 5 years
        Alana Curnyn, Jefferson – 10 years                           Leisel Barrett, Boone – 5 years
        Ann Hughes, Winterset – 10 years                             Todd Crase, Winterset – 5 years

                                                Giving Back to the Community & the World - Giving back to the community
                                                is important to the Genesis Discovery groups and the focal point of many of their
                                                projects. Discovery in Jefferson recently donated more than 240 food items to
                                                the Greene County Christian Action Resource Center. At the beginning of the
                                                month the group challenged themselves, those in the Work Services program,
                                                and the Genesis staff to collect at least 200 items before the end of the month.
                                                They more than reached their goal and spent part of an afternoon boxing it up
                                                and delivering it to the food pantry.
                                                This group also did a food project to benefit the hungry in Honduras. They spent
                                                an afternoon in Scranton helping with the set-up for a food packaging project to
                                                benefit the world’s hungry.

                                   has completed their second year of cooking classes.
                                   This year five Saturday sessions focused on outdoor
                                   grilling, Italian food, Mexican food, soups, and
                                   party/finger foods. Eighteen members learned how
                                   to cook things like chicken wings, empanaditas,

                                   cheesecake. Not only did class members learn how
                                   to prepare the food, they also did the shopping, did
                                   price checks, and learned about the value, nutrition
and cost per serving as well as enjoyed the meal they prepared. Typically there were
usually enough leftovers for each of them to take a meal home to enjoy also.

                  Cola
Pepsi and Coca-Cola came to the rescue of the residents of the ten group homes in Boone in January
                                                                                             Coca-Cola
when the city invoked a boil order for 48 hours due to a broken water main. The Pepsi and Coca
                                                   bottled
companies donated a combined total of 55 cases of bottled water to Genesis. The incident also brought to
the attention of the Genesis Safety Committee the need for water shortage to be
addressed in the Genesis Disaster Plan.




                                                Acquiring useable vehicles is always a challenge for the Genesis budget, but Gary
                                                Schulte of Ackworth, made it a little easier by donating a Ford Econline van to our
                                                Indianola site. The van will make outings, field trips and grocery shopping much
                                                                                          group-living
                                                easier for the residents of the Indianola group living homes.
