Friendship Community Center is looking for new board members to join its existing board. The Board of Directors of this non-profit, formed in 1976, is responsible for governance, oversight and development of the organization.
Friendship's Georgia-certified Peer Support Program is a self-directed, recovery-based program assisting adults living with chronic mental illnesses to re-establish and develop essential skills needed to re-integrate into the community. The program is designed to assist these individuals in gaining skills and learning recovery methods that enable them to maintain their path towards mental health recovery, eliminate mental health crises, minimize hospital visits, stay out of jail and move into the community with sustainable employment.
Board meetings are held monthly, each lasting one and one half hours. Board members are expected to participate in a committee that may require an additional time commitment of between one and two hours per month. Board members are Friendship's ambassadors to the community. Increasing the organization's connections and visibility in the community and being a proponent of mental health are important to the success of Friendship.
