Anawim Housing and Des Moines non-profit The Beacon have entered into a partnership to maximize expertise and capacity for serving individuals with substance use disorders. The result is the Full Circle Recovery Community Center (Full Circle RCC): an independent, non-profit organization led and governed by representatives of local communities in recovery. Full Circle RCC will support expanding pathways to recovery for people who use substances and will function as a recovery resource for the local community. Utilizing peer-based recovery support services, Full Circle RCC will utilize evidenced based practices, public education and policy advocacy to achieve its mission. Full Circle Recovery Community Center is not a treatment center. It offers emotional, informational and practical supports for individuals and families who are affected by substance misuse. The Full Circle RCC will operate in three locations across Iowa: Des Moines, Council Bluffs and Sioux City!
The Education and Advocacy Manager ensures Full Circle Recovery Community Center is creating and implementing programming and services based on best practices for supporting multiple pathways to recovery for underserved and hard-to-reach populations seeking recovery, including language translation services and translating key flyers. The manager will maintain a calendar of recovery meetings and educational classes and will be responsible for organizing and managing the Community Planning Committee. Programming will be culturally responsive, trauma informed, and based on the needs identified by those in recovery at whatever stage they may be. The Education and Advocacy Manager will assist the Director in connection with potential referral agencies including the justice system and treatment centers, and engage with change makers in the community around advocacy and education for those facing substance use disorders.
We are hiring two positions. One for our Council Bluffs location, and one for our Sioux City location! This position will need to be on-site (cannot be remote). Please be sure to specify which location you are interested in applying for.
Submit resume and cover letter by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Position will remain open until filled.
