New Day works on helping our members find and secure employment opportunities and housing.

Transitional Employment

Transitional Employment is where a member works at a temporary position out in a local business. The New Day Placement Manager works with all parties to ensure that the member receives adequate support and training, and that all aspects of the job are completed.  These opportunities allow  members to gain income while also learning valuable job skills. Members work part-time, up to five days per week, and receive the standard wage of the job position.

Supportive Employment

New Day staff provides supportive services throughout the entire employment process. New Day helps to establish and maintain an open-relationship between the employee and employer through personal visits and/or phone calls. The staff also provides the member with other helpful services such as job referrals and resume development.

Independent Employment

When members find their own employment, they can still utilize the clubhouse for continued support. Staff or other members provide advice and support in order to maximum their job effectiveness and performance.

At this point, a housing referral form will also need to be completed. While you still have to pay rent, the homes are HUD subsidized, which means that the monthly payments are determined based on your level of income.
