Fort Bend Clubhouse seeks Executive Director  Position based in Richmond, TX

The Fort Bend Clubhouse is looking for an energetic, proactive Executive Director (ED) knowledgeable about the Clubhouse Model in order to manage and grow the daily operations, and to ensure that the Clubhouse is a viable, ongoing entity.  The Fort Bend Clubhouse is a 501c3 non-profit operation that provides a work-centered day for those with a mental health diagnosis.  The Clubhouse does not charge for its services, but rather depends upon grants from philanthropic organizations to fund its operation.  As such, successful grant writing is a necessary requirement for the ED. 

The Fort Bend Clubhouse is a rather new organization, having been started in January of 2017.  The Clubhouse is located in Richmond, Texas at the Brazos Bend Villas.  The Clubhouse currently meets three days per week, but it is anticipated that it will meet five days per week when the membership numbers justify expanding service to five days.  Initially, the only paid position will be the ED, but as the membership grows, paid staff will be required.  It will be the responsibility of the ED, in partnership with the Board of Directors to solicit and obtain adequate grant monies to pay all salaries.  Fortunately, Fort Bend County has many private and public companies that have foundations that fund philanthropic organizations. 

It is anticipated that the ED will have extensive experience in social services, preferably in mental health. The ED will be responsible for the entire operation of the FB Clubhouse, and for ensuring that the International Standards for Clubhouse Programs set forth by Clubhouse International are followed.  There are currently approximately 320 Clubhouses worldwide in 34 countries.  There are currently two accredited Clubhouses in Houston, but none in Fort Bend County.

The attributes that we are looking for include:

  • Good organizational skills
  • Good social skills appropriate for working with those with a mental health diagnosis
  • Proven leadership skills
  • Good writing ability- proven grant writing is a plus
  • Flexibility
  • Ability to make group presentations
  • Ability to collaborate with other non-profit and also government organizations 
  • Ability to oversee and meet budget
  • Experience working in the Clubhouse Model or a willingness to attend Comprehensive Clubhouse Training at a certified Training Base

The ED will report to the Board of Directors of Fort Bend Clubhouse, and will be responsible for the hiring, supervision and management of Clubhouse employees and the recruitment of eligible Clubhouse members from the community.  The ED will also be responsible for fund development, creating and administering the budget, public relations, and publicly representing the Clubhouse mission to the community and government officials.  The ED must be willing to work long and varied hours, and to work with many kinds of people with varied personalities and interests.   

To apply, send resume and letter of interest to Pat Sumner at psumner1@comcast.net

San Antonio Clubhouse seeks Clubhouse Program Manager  Position based in San Antonio, TX

 

San Antonio Clubhouse is seeking an energetic and dedicated individual to serve as our Clubhouse Program Manager, overseeing the daily operations of our Clubhouse Work-Ordered Day (WOD) program.  You’ll work with, and receive support from, the rest of the organization’s management team (Executive Director, CFO, Operations Director), but you’d be the individual primarily responsible for managing the Clubhouse WOD program. 

Background of San Antonio Clubhouse

The San Antonio Clubhouse is an independent 501(c)3 non-profit, not associated with an auspice agency.  We’ve been operating for 14 years and recently moved into a new 20,000 square-foot two-story building.  The Clubhouse Work Ordered Day program is housed on the first floor (10,000 Square Feet), with the second floor reserved for new programming in the future.  We are Accredited and actively participate in all Clubhouse International activities, including national and international conferences, and Colleague Training (on a yearly basis).

What we look like today

  • Over 2,000 members
  • 650 members who’ve participated in the past 24 months
  • 454 members who’ve participated in the past 12 months
  • 229 members who are active (participated in last 90 days)
  • Approximately 45-55 members attending daily
  • 3 units
    • Operations – 3 Generalists (Culinary, Wellness, Facilities)
    • Member Services – 3 Generalists (Employment, Member Services / Onboarding, Member Readiness)
    • Media Lab – 2 Generalists (Multimedia Coach and Mission Systems Coach)
    • An active consulting service (the Assistance and Management Program), through which we help other clubhouses, primarily in Texas
    • Highly-systemized, with custom technology for data-tracking, case management, and outcomes reporting—all of which is done by our members as part of the Work-Ordered Day
    • No Medicaid billing (today), and only minimal state / county reporting
    • Annual budget: ~$900K—almost entirely raised through private donors and foundations

Where we’re headed

Our vision for the San Antonio Clubhouse is to be the hub of mental health recovery in San Antonio.  For 14 years, our non-profit (the San Antonio Clubhouse, Inc) has only operated one program: the Clubhouse Work-Ordered Day (WOD) program.  To meet the goals set forth in our Strategic Plan, we will begin adding additional services to our overall non-profit organization, meaning that the Clubhouse Work-Ordered Day program will be only one of the programs offered by the organization

Our intention is to create these programs outside of the Clubhouse WOD program to keep fidelity to the Clubhouse model.  The Clubhouse WOD is the reason we exist—the new programs will be created to supplement or complement the WOD program.  These new programs may include:

  • A young-adults program
  • A day program that is less rigorous than the clubhouse (for adults who are not ready to be in a clubhouse environment)
  • A social-enterprise program focused on creating paying jobs for adults living with mental illness.

What makes the San Antonio Clubhouse different from other clubhouses

The San Antonio Clubhouse is unique.  Here are a few of the things that make us unique:

  • We’re independent from any auspice agencies, so we have incredible flexibility in what we do and how we operate.
  • We have a culture of innovation and creativity.  Because of our flexibility, we’re able to try new projects (like a social enterprise to market/sell coffee) or create new units (a development/fundraising unit).  We value good ideas, regardless of where they originate.  We’re exploring the addition of several new programs over the next 12 months, including the creation of our own Farmer’s Market (for non-profits), an urban-farming team, and a unit focused on managing databases for other clubhouses
  • We value the experience of our staff members as much as the experience of our members.  In the past year, we’ve cut the “required” staff work hours from 40 to 37.5 without lowering salaries. We’ve also made changes meant to reduce “burnout” and improve staff morale
  • We have a unique role in the clubhouse world, working as both a clubhouse and a service provider to other clubhouses.  We provide technical assistance, consulting, and technology support to other clubhouses (primarily in Texas), but in other cities as well.  We love what we do at our clubhouse and enjoy helping other clubhouses grow

Expectations of the Program Manager

As the Clubhouse Program Manager, you’d:

  • Lead our clubhouse
    • Ensure we deliver the best experience to our members and staff
    • Be responsible for setting the emotional tone of the Clubhouse
    • Pro-actively work with the rest of the organization’s management team to identify potential issues and to find positive solutions
    • Lead by example, modeling energy and enthusiasm, compassion, teamwork, perseverance, and creativity
    • Be an independent thought-leader
      • Work with very minimal direction, but with support from the rest of the organization’s management team
      • Balance the collaborative nature of clubhouse and the requirements of being a leader and manager—do high-quality work, on time.
      • Be flexible and responsive to the changing needs of the overall organization (the other programs outside of clubhouse)
      • Make good decisions through a combination of analysis, wisdom, experience, and judgement.
      • Balance the big picture with the “day-to-day”
        • Be willing to think through how we would implement new ideas, even if we don’t ultimately pursue them
        • Think strategically, anticipate future consequences and trends, and incorporate them into the organizational plan
        • Develop strategies to achieve organizational goals and adapts strategy to changing conditions
        • Mentor and develop our staff
          • Build organizational and staff capacity, developing a top-notch workforce, and the supervising protocols and processes that ensure the organization runs smoothly, professionally, and at the highest ethical and legal standards
          • Inspire, manage, and lead, with the ability to connect staff both on an individual level and in groups
          • Be capable of enforcing accountability and learn the strengths and weaknesses of the team to put people in a position to succeed
          • Always be learning
            • Demonstrate a broad experience with the full range of business functions and systems, including strategic development and planning, budgeting, business analysis, information systems, federal and state government funding administration, and marketing
            • Constantly learn new processes and technologies—you’d be overseeing units that do some of the most complex work done in any clubhouse, anywhere

What you WOULD NOT be responsible for

  • Data collection—this is, and should always be, primarily unit work
  • Fundraising—you’d support fundraising and development efforts through the WOD and unit-work, but you would not personally be responsible for the overall fundraising for the organization
  • Working with the Board of Directors—you’d interact with them, but Board relationships are ultimately responsibility of the Executive Director

Job Requirements

  • An understanding and commitment to the Clubhouse model and its underlying principles and values
  • Ability to work flexible hours, including evenings, weekend, and holiday hours
  • Ability to travel both within and out of state, for up-to two-weeks at a time (up-to twice per year) and up-to one-week at a time (up-to 8 times per year)
  • Experience supervising a staff & holding them accountable to high standards
  • Experience developing new clubhouse programming and implementing it to successfully engage members and staff
  • Experience designing processes, analyzing data, and delivering outcomes

Compensation:   Salary range is commensurate with qualifications and experience.  Relocation expenses will be considered

Instructions for applying:   Please send:

  • Your resume
  • Your cover letter explaining (based on what you’ve read about this position):
    • Why you think you’d be a good fit for the San Antonio clubhouse
    • A program idea that you would like to see implemented (anywhere) to better the lives of clubhouse members, with an explanation of what it would take to implement that program and what challenges you’d face
    • What you think is the biggest challenge facing clubhouses today, and how that challenge could be overcome

Send both to: Eric Estrada: Eric@SAClubhouse.org.  Please, no calls. 

The person who is offered the position will undergo a background check, including a DMV record review, FBI and DOJ fingerprinting.

Prime Time House seeks Executive Director  Position based in Torrington, CT

 

ORGANIZATION

Like any Club, members feel a commonality and reach out to support one another both in times of celebration and times of crisis.
