As part of the process for rehabilitation and recovery, many members view finding a job as one of their goals.  Polaris House can assist members with any step of the process, from determining what type of job an individual would like to do, to providing on the job assistance to help them maintain the position. Polaris House also has several Transitional Employment positions at various local businesses, allowing members to have the opportunity to try out different types of jobs in the community while receiving support from staff that is tailored to the member’s needs.

If a member would like to find an independent position in the community, we can help with that too! Polaris House staff is available to assist members with the application process, from writing resumes and practicing for a job interview, to communicating with an employer.  Once a member has found a job, we can continue to offer support and guidance to both the employer and employee, based on the member’s individual needs.

The Wolf Unit participates in housing, education and the clubhouse culinary programs; including lunches and the snack bar. Members interested in the food industry business use this is as an avenue for honing many skills; such as, time management, tracking inventory, purchase orders, data entry, and janitorial. The list goes on to include advertising and human resource skills.

The Bear Unit focuses on employment and clubhouse administration. The Transitional Employment and Supported Employment programs are undergoing major revision to offer members a wide array of employment supports. Administrative work in the unit includes accounting, writing articles for the newsletter, payroll, paying bills and invoices, and filing, to name a few.
