Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare (www.cascadiabhc.org), one of the largest community behavioral health providers in the state of Oregon, delivers whole health care -- integrated mental health and addiction services, primary care and housing -- to support our communities. Our approach is recovery-oriented and trauma-informed. Cascadia hires innovative, compassionate, and dedicated staff who are aligned with trauma-informed care, are committed to working effectively with diverse community populations, and expected to strengthen such capacity if hired.
This is a full time position at 40 hours per week, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. The work is performed primarily in the community and in participant's homes with some office work being performed at one of Cascadia's outpatient Health Centers in NE Portland where the Housing Outreach team is based.
The Counselor III position will provide and coordinate a wide range of supportive and therapeutic mental health and dual diagnosis services for adults who are diagnosed with mental illness, substance use issues, and other health issues who are participants in a Housing Outreach Team supportive housing program. With the high prevalence of trauma among individuals receiving mental health services, it is required the Counselor III understand the effects of trauma on health, coping, and other aspects of the lives of those we serve. This position will work on the Housing Outreach Team which provides home and community based services to participants, individuals and families, who experienced homelessness and have a mental health disability. Services are focused around supporting the participant and/or family to stabilize their housing, end their experience with homelessness, improve their health, and move forward in their mental health recovery. Through this program, participants will be assisted in obtaining income, medical care, and support systems in their community. This position involves participation and implementation of program goals and objectives to promote a strengths-based, client-centered approach to assisting supportive housing program participants in achieving individual goals and ultimately transitioning from supportive housing to independent housing.
Cascadia is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified candidates will receive consideration for employment without regard to status as a protected veteran or a qualified individual with a disability, or other protected status such as race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, national origin, or age.
