  • 16 people are interested
Image_202004281507

David’s Harp was founded in 1978 by members of the community and of Parkrose United Methodist Church to provide a friendly and peer-supportive environment in which adults with a major mental illness come together to achieve an improved quality of life and the highest possible level of independence in the community.

David’s Harp is currently seeking individuals interested in joining its board of directors. Candidates will: have leadership experience accompanied by demonstrated accomplishments; a natural ability for cultivating relationships; display integrity, credibility, and responsibility; and, be passionate about serving adults who have a severe and persistent mental illness. Board members interested in taking an active volunteer role with administrative work, program coordination, or event planning are also a big plus!

David’s Harp is particularly interested in individuals with a background in accounting and financial management, or communications, marketing, and public relations. Ideal candidates are visionary thinkers who have the capacity to take on projects - large and small - and see them through.

The time commitment for a David’s Harp board member is two (2) to ten (10) hours per month, dependent on upcoming events, projects, or meetings. All board members must attend at least 75% of scheduled board meetings (held the first Thursday evening of every other month) and special events.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, some meetings may be held remotely (via video or phone) temporarily.

Please contact info@davidsharp.org if you are interested or have any questions.

Mission Statement

The mission of David’s Harp is "to provide a warm, friendly and peer-supportive environment in which adults with a major mental illness, regardless of their age, gender, sexual orientation, religion or race, come together to achieve an improved quality of life and the highest possible level of independence in the community."

Description

David’s Harp was founded in 1978 through the grassroots efforts of members of the Parkrose United Methodist Church and over 100 volunteers and mental health professionals, making it the first (and oldest) operation of its kind in Multnomah County. David’s Harp is a secular and independent nonprofit serving low- and no-income adults who have a severe and persistent mental illness.

Our mission is "to provide a friendly and peer-supportive environment in which adults with a major mental illness come together to achieve an improved quality of life and the highest possible level of independence in the community."

We achieve this mission by providing a daytime clubhouse setting where clients are provided with socialization and skill-building activities such as art and music therapy, occupational therapy, gardening, cooking, meal-sharing, cultural events, and daily community outings. David’s Harp services reduce re-hospitalization, recidivism, and chronic homelessness among the mentally ill.
