The Buckeye Ranch Relocating Services to WhitehallOctober 1, 2019 2:00 pm Taijuan Moorman
The Buckeye Ranch has announced that it will consolidate two current sites, offices, its foundation, and a number of services to a former PNC Bank call center at 4653 E. Main St. in Whitehall.
In a press release, the organization said the decision to move was made in order to provide its patients with more services from a central setting. Offices at Rosemont School Center and on East Broad Street will relocate to the Main Street space. Programs offered at the organization’s Grove City location will also be transferred to the 80,000 square-foot space.
“We currently serve more than 5,000 children and their families each year, and that number is growing,” said The Buckeye Ranch CEO Vickie Thompson-Sandy. “We wanted this space to help meet that increasing demand for mental health services for our community.”
The new site will offer a variety of services, including medication management, same-day access, therapeutic services such as functional family therapy, as well as a Somali support program, Permanent Family Solutions (PFSN) services and Foster Care services.
“The move will provide more effective coordination of care with the majority of employees housed in one location,” said Thompson-Sandy. “The more inclusive site will also better meet the needs of children in Ohio and negate their needs to travel out of state for services. And create a stronger range of care for patients on their journey of healing.”
Whitehall Mayor Kim Maggard also spoke on the move, commenting on the organization’s positive impact and its new place in Whitehall.
“We are so proud that the nearly 300 employees who plan and implement critical Ranch programs will be calling Whitehall home,” she said. “They’re joining an ever-increasing list of businesses and nonprofits who are growing in Whitehall, providing employment opportunities for our citizens and positive economic impact on our city.”
