Job Description:

ServeWyoming AmeriCorps VISTA-Summer-Iris House

The Iris Clubhouse empowers our members to develop relationship and career skills in a safe working environment. We prepare and enjoy a noon meal together and offer a wide range of opportunities to members during the work ordered day to better their own lives including skill building and assistance with employment, education, socialization, transportation, housing, wellness, and life skills. Iris Clubhouse requires participants to be 18 years or older, living with mental illness and not to pose a current threat to the clubhouse community. Nearly all of our members are on Social Security Disability. A few are working toward employment and three of our twenty-seven active members are employed. COVID has impacted the ability of our members to find secure employment and as we recover we focus our skills development to be of best assistance to businesses that are working to reopen and insure confidence in our members to return to society post-COVID and be productive members adding to the community and economic recovery in these difficult times.
