The Peer Supervisor is responsible for the effective planning and delivery of the Adult Home Initiative peer support and advocacy services, providing supervision and team building to the Peer Advocate teams.
The Peer Supervisor also collaborates with the AHI Director in the development and implementation of policies, practices, and procedures to advance the initiative's goals.
The Adult Home Initiative is a new mental health Peer-led project that emerged from a New York State class action settlement agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice and private plaintiffs living with mental health challenges who reside in impacted New York City Adult Homes. The settlement agreement provides opportunities for these residents to transition into community-based supportive housing.
The initiative will utilize a range of individualized and group-based peer-informed strategies to promote housing transitions, striving to empower class members through exposure to possibilities, development of self-advocacy skills, promoting informed choices, and enhancing community engagement.
