About Venture House
Venture House is a community based mental health agency, utilizing the Clubhouse model of Psychosocial Rehabilitation. Our mission is to support individuals living with mental illness to achieve recovery through improved access to education, employment, recreation, housing and community engagement in an environment of mutual acceptance and empowerment. Despite the word “house” in our name, we are not a congregate care facility and no one lives onsite.
Venture House is hiring for positions at both our Queens and Staten Island Locations.
In circumstances where the physical building is required to be closed, staff will work remotely. Their responsibilities will include: engaging members in the “Virtual Clubhouse” through video conferencing, phone calls, creative projects, letters, virtual group facilitation, participation in a facebook group, housing program assistance, and other tasks as assigned. There may be situations where a hybrid schedule is required.
Under normal circumstances, Staff work side-by-side with Clubhouse Members (program participants) to run day-to-day operations, including intake and admissions, meal preparation and service, facility maintenance, program development and implementation, job development and coaching, as well as social and recreational programming.
The primary responsibility of a psychosocial rehabilitation worker (normally) is to engage Clubhouse members, encouraging their participation in the “Work Ordered Day” (WOD). Psychosocial rehabilitation workers assist our members in reaching their recovery goals, including: housing; employment; education; financial literacy; socialization; sobriety; and wellness.
Psychosocial rehabilitation workers are also responsible for: job development, job coaching, benefits advising, case management, crisis intervention, day-to-day operations, apartment visits, and service documentation.
Our Queens location is open 365 days a year, and our Staten Island location is open Mon-Sat and holidays. Staff take turns working weekends, evenings, and holidays.
The ideal candidate is a passionate and enthusiastic self-starter with strong problem solving and engagement skills. Candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree or higher in Social Work, Psychology, Counseling, or a related field.
