Description

Hope Cooperative has been providing behavioral health and supportive housing services for people with mental health challenges for over 41 years in Sacramento County. As a client-driven organization, it is dedicated to the independence and empowerment of individuals with psychiatric disabilities and co-occurring substance use disorders including those experiencing homelessness. Two volunteers are needed to serve as wellness center associates. The wellness center makes a critical difference by providing a space where members can engage in positive activities, rather than activities that could jeopardize their sobriety and stable mental health, possibly leading to incarceration or hospitalization. The responsibilities of the volunteers include planning and implementing activities, client support, and advocacy for clients seeking resources and support.
