Homeport partners with Jewish Family Services for Senior Service Coordination

In spring 2013, Homeport launched a new multi-site service coordination partnership with Jewish Family Services. Jewish Family Services has a long and respected history of providing quality supportive services. We would like to highlight our partner supervisor and service coordinators for Fieldstone, Elim Manor, and Eastway Village. 

Danielle Ruben, M.S.W., LISW-S, Community Support Program Coordinator at Jewish Family Services, has over 10 years experience assisting individuals with crisis stabilization, financial stability planning, community resource linkage, and individual counseling. Danielle has been with Jewish Family Services since 2009. Prior to working at Jewish Family Services, Danielle was at Mt. Carmel East Hospital. She worked both in the Emergency Department, along with discharge planning with patients. Danielle has also worked with children in various agencies throughout her career. Outside of work Danielle enjoys time with her husband and 3 sons. In addition, Danielle is a passionate runner who loves training for Half Marathons, along with spending time outdoors.

 

  

Doug Grote. I am the Service Coordinator for Homeport’s senior facilities at Eastway Village, Elim Manor and Fieldstone Court. I am a 2013 graduate of Capital University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and I recently passed my test to become a Licensed Social Worker. I became interested in working with the elderly as I helped my parents care for my aging grandparents. I also helped care for my great grandmother who lived to be 106. I enjoy about working with Homeport because I am passionate about interacting with the residents and helping those residents get connected to the services they need. I grew up on a farm in Greenville, Ohio and I lived with my parents and younger sister. I was a 10 year member of 4-H, showing pigs and rabbits. I won Darke County Junior Fair Professional Showmanship. It was my proudest achievement in 4-H and it is the only trophy I have kept. My first official job was delivering pizza for Little Caesar’s. The most interesting job I have held was working for Walt Disney World as part of the Disney College Program. I am an avid reader and comic book collector. I also enjoy computer and video games. I started collecting Disney Pins when I was a Disney Cast Member and have continued to add to my collection. I am also a big sports fan and my favorite teams are the Crew, Blue Jackets, Clippers, Buckeyes, Reds, Bengals, BG Falcons, and Tampa Bay Rays.
