The Provider, the newspaper of The Providers’ Council, is a monthly publication that details the latest news and trends in the human services sector. Incompass Care Champion Seth Greenblatt was chosen to be profiled for this month’s issue as part of the Provider Profiles section. Check out the full story below.
Seth Greenblatt can best be described as a jack of all trades, having spent time in almost every program that Incompass Human Services offers since joining the agency in 2011. After living abroad in Australia for a year, Greenblatt was inspired to reenter the human services workforce, and his passion for the work has driven his career advancement at Incompass. When family support, day habilitation, or community-based day services needed an extra set of hands, he never hesitated. In spring 2023, Greenblatt was promoted to his current position as the TREE program manager, a facility-based day program at Incompass.
In his current role, Greenblatt offers supports to a unique subset of the population – adults with complex life experiences, psychiatric diagnoses, and behavioral challenges. As program manager, he oversees the individual support plans (ISP) for each program participant, organizes vocational training opportunities for participants, and handles data entry for the Home and Community Services Information System (HCSIS).
Managing twelve staff in a unique program such as TREE is no small feat. Greenblatt leverages the hard and soft skills he has acquired over the years to be an efficient leader. His Bachelor of Communications gives him an edge when collaborating with other departments within the agency. In contrast, his MAP, CPR, and First Aid certifications are critical in maintaining a safe environment for staff and participants.
Outside of the technical responsibilities of his position, Greenblatt emphasizes the importance of putting the “human” into human services. “Seth has embraced his time in the TREE program and made great strides in developing relationships with participants that have contributed to their positive experiences in the program,” Director of Day Services Emily Horn said. “I find ways to connect with them on a personal level and look forward to activities where they can enjoy themselves. Really anything that makes them happy,” said Greenblatt. He is admired by staff for being personable, dependable, and always “on the clock” when a situation arises.
Greenblatt meets people with the compassion and open-mindedness that allows them to be their most authentic selves, truly encompassing what it means to be a care champion.
