Job description

The Carriage House, recognized as a leader by Clubhouse International, is an Accredited Clubhouse Program seeking a dedicated, fun, and energetic person to join our community. We provide non-traditional psycho-social rehabilitation for adults with serious mental illnesses in a unique setting. Those seeking our help are known as members because they are volunteers, who are not only seeking assistance for themselves, but also use their own talents and abilities to assist others. We do not conduct therapy sessions or psycho-educational groups, but instead, operate a Work-ordered Day program where members have the opportunity to maximize their strengths in the service of others. This holistic strength-based approach is supported by research as one of the most effective models of recovery for people diagnosed with mental illness. Staff are asked to participate as a colleague on a team of adults who are helping each other in recovery, as opposed to traditional case manager jobs with caseloads and billing requirements.


General responsibilities include:

  • Engaging clubhouse members in the work of the clubhouse to build self-esteem and social skills.
  • Assisting members to become more independent in the community through employment, education, recreation, and advocacy programs.
  • Using social skills to resolve disputes and de-escalate tensions that may arise between members.
  • Developing genuine collegial relationships within the clubhouse community while advocating for change to reduce stigma in the broader society.

Job Duties

  • Facilitating meetings
  • Culinary tasks
  • Accounting tasks
  • General knowledge of Microsoft word and Excel
  • Familiarity with the various social media platforms
  • Helping members improve their housing situations including filling out applications and assisting with relocation
  • Typical work hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.
  • Social programming on Mondays/Wednesdays from 5 PM to 7 PM and Saturdays from 10:30 to 2 PM. Staff work 4 hours a month to facilitate recreation.

  • Staff work on a rotation to cover holidays – as the clubhouse is open on all holidays throughout the year.

Benefits:

  • 2 weeks paid vacation
  • 1-week sick leave
  • 8 paid holidays
  • Health insurance for employee and dependents
  • Dental and vision

  • 403b retirement plan

Eligibility Requirements:
