All Kinds of News for September 16, 2020
(Redlands, CA) Benchmark Transitions is pleased to announce that on September 9, 2020, Benchmark celebrated their 27th year in business, making them the longest running young adult-specific treatment and transitional living program in the nation. Due to the El Dorado fire in Yucaipa, which caused emergency evacuations for two Benchmark programs, as well as limitations posed by the COVID-19 healthcare crisis, the occasion was celebrated modestly with staff and clients.
"When I started Benchmark 27 years ago today," remarked founder and CEO Jayne Longnecker-Harper, M.Ed., "it was very modest, indeed. I had one staff to help me and we had only one young adult client. The fact that we've managed to survive in business all of these years is truly a blessing for me and my family. Our goal has been the same since the first day. We are here to help young adults and their famillies heal and help them gain the skills they need to live healthy and productive lives. If we've done that over all of these years, then we have succeeded," Jayne concludes.
Bechmark continues to work closely with local fire authorities and with the State of California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) to ensure client and staff safetly during the fires and has been keeping families updated throughout the process.
