Our families tell us over and over how grateful they are to The Grounds for providing this real-world experience to their son.
Our members take advantage of the job opportunities and variety of jobs available to them. Some examples of jobs our members have secured: Pizza parlor, auto shop, swim teacher, lifeguard, bike shop, coffee shop, grocery store, animal kennel/daycare, construction and many more. We encourage members to search high and low for the job that’s right for them even if that means they need to take a less than desirable position to start. One step at a time – another way we translate a 12-Step tenant into everyday living.
For most of our members, the freedom and decreased supervision that comes when they secure employment is motivation enough to get out there and “pound the pavement”.
