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

 

ORGANIZATION

Prime Time House, Inc. is a community-based organization that annually assists over 300 individuals in Connecticut’s rural northwest corner who are living with the challenges of mental illness. Because of this disease individuals often lose everything – their jobs, their homes, and sometimes even their friends and families.  Prime Time House offers them a caring environment where they are treated with dignity and respect. With the support of their peers and staff they begin to rebuild their lives.

Prime Time House will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2018.

·      Prime Time Clubhouse: The Clubhouse program focuses on activities geared towards building job skills, social skills, friendships and the confidence to re-enter and re-engage with the community. Prime Time is a Club, not a clinic.  No diagnoses are made nor medications prescribed.  People join voluntarily, as members not patients—they are equal partners who work with staff and fellow members to complete the daily tasks involved in running the program. Like any Club, members feel a commonality and reach out to support one another both in times of celebration and times of crisis. 

·      Career Services Supported Employment: A basic tenet of the Clubhouse model is the importance of work. Having a job to do, paid or unpaid,  significant or routine, gives a person a sense of purpose, of being needed, valued, depended upon.   A major goal of Prime Time House is to move members back into the workforce.  By necessity, the process often must begin slowly -- even taking on one of the simplest task in the Clubhouse can be difficult at first.  But it is the first step in a process that moves members to employment at local businesses. This is accomplished with staff support throughout this transition. 

·      Supportive Housing:  People suffering from mental illness are often at risk for homelessness. This program helps these individuals find and maintain safe, affordable housing.

·      Transportation and Paperwork:  Prime Time House provides transportation to jobs, doctor’s appointments and helps members complete complex paperwork involved with securing benefits.
