first_img Share 24 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! Share President of Community Hostels Inc, Ainsworth IrishMembers of the board of directors of Community Hostels Inc (Grotto Home for the Homeless) have proposed a plan of action to help improve the operations of the institution. This plan of action was revealed by president of the organization, Ainsworth Irish at its annual general meeting on July 14 at the Fort Young Hotel. As part of the plan, he suggested for implementation is that all staff members should receive adequate training to fall in line with regulations and rules of running an institution of that nature. “A mentoring system is to be developed in which the stronger residents will assist the weaker ones”.“A better system of monitoring the systems which were put in place to ensure better accountability and reporting standards is to be maintained,” Mr Irish said. He added that every effort will be made to promote more efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the institution. “A form will be developed to capture information to develop a data base on all the residents who are currently at the institution and those who will be admitted,” Mr Irish said. Moreover, as part of the plan of action, members of the board of directors will have a more hands-on information approach to the institution’s operations.This hands-on approach, he noted, will be in regards to “decisions about residents’ admission and management using this updated protocol to help the institution solidify its affairs”.
