Member Agencies & Online Resource Swap
Each year, RCCMHC Partners and Member Agencies commit to cross-system collaboration by giving cash or in-kind resources to the RCCMHC Integrated Fund.
Put Something in... Take Something Out
Starting in January 2020, in-kind resources will be posted on RCCMHC's Online Resource Swap. RCCMHC Partners and Member Agencies can visit the Resource Swap to get FREE products and services related to childrens' mental health and family wellbeing.

What type of in-kind services can you donate?
Agencies can share new (or slightly used) goods and professional services that support youth mental health and family wellbeing. Some examples from past years include:
Scholarships or Conference Fees
Meeting or Event Space
Technical Assistance (Payroll support, Grant Writing, Accounting, Marketing, Graphic/Web Design, Translating)
Trainings and Expert Speakers
Youth and Family Services (Life skills, crisis intervention, case management)
In-Patient (Adolescent Unit Stay, Partial Program Unit Stay)
Youth Activity Fees
Products (Lockboxes, Resource Materials/Booklets)
Donations for RCCMHC-ONLY (staff time to attend RCCMHC committees; meeting space for RCCMHC, slightly used binders)
When we work TOGETHER,
we can leverage a wealth of local resources and capabilities such as: funds, services, technologies, expertise, community wisdom, peer support and volunteerism.
WHY A RESOURCE SWAP?
In the past, Member Agencies donated wonderful services to RCCMHC, but they were rarely used because very few people knew about what had been donated or how to access those donations. This online Resource Swap is a pilot project to increase the use of donated products and services. If successful, we think the Resource Swap will enable Member Agencies to leverage existing community resources and greatly increase service access for youth and families.
HOW TO GET POINTS
When you donate a product or service to RCCMHC, you assign a cash value to the item. Based on that cash value, we will give you points to use on the Resource Swap.
For example: If you donate 1 youth program slot (M-F; one year) and you value that donation at $3,000... RCCMHC will award you 3,000 points to use on the Online Resource Swap
WHERE ARE YOUR POINTS?
After RCCMHC has assigned you points, you can visit the Resource Swap and log into your "online wallet."
Your online wallet will track your points. When you spend points, they will disappear from your online wallet.
HOW TO USE POINTS
Put items into your cart as you normally would when online shopping. When you are ready to check out, go to your online wallet and convert your points to cash. This will give you a coupon code that you can use to "pay."
HOW DO YOU GET THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE?
After you "purchase" a donated product or service, you will receive a purchase confirmation. RCCMHC staff will connect you with the agency who donated the product or service. Member Agencies will collaborate to coordinate timely delivery of the product or service.
