OHU Seeks Therapists for Illinois ‘Service Deserts’

One Hope United is currently searching for therapists interested in serving Illinois children and families who do not have immediate access to much needed counseling services.

Our counseling services are focused on the areas around Charleston, Effingham, Mt. Vernon, Olney and Chicago. Many of these communities are effectively facing a “service desert,” and countless families are unable to access the therapy they and their children need due to a lack of Medicaid-fundable resources. We believe that there are therapists who would like to serve these families but their current private practice does not have the capacity to handle the complexity of billing the array of Medicaid MCOs.

We are looking to partner with skilled therapists who would like to provide an evening or even a full day of services. If interested or to learn more, please contact Margaret Vimont at mvimont@onehopeunited.org.
