Organization's Mission: Adults with severe and persistent mental illness in Salt Lake City deserve every opportunity to build self-confidence and self-esteem, reintegrate into their community, become independent and productive members of society and live happy, healthy lives. That’s why Alliance House exists to provide a supportive environment where adults with serious, persistent mental illness (SPMI) can rebuild their self-respect, dignity, and abilities through education, productive work, and meaningful relationships. We do this by helping Members complete educational goals, develop necessary work skills in order to return to productive employment in the community, and where needed, help Members find and secure affordable housing.
Organization's Race, Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion Statement and Work: Diversity, inclusion and equity are values that Alliance House embraces in order to lead the development of an economy grounded in meeting the basic needs of all adults living with mental illness, provides a safe environment, and encourages joyful community. It is our belief that such an economy cannot be fully realized if people are excluded from full and fair participation as a result of racism, poverty, discrimination, cultural ignorance, bias or other conditions of exclusion.

Diversity, inclusion and equity values will also guide our communications, events, forums and programs to ensure the authentic presence, participation and perspectives of all communities. In addition, Alliance House is committed to continuous improvement in promoting sustainable diversity, inclusion and equity practices through our board recruitment, Equal Opportunity Employment Policy and other future commitments.
Position Summary: Who we are: Our intentional working community is a non-clinical therapy-through-work program that focuses on helping adults living with mental illness to rehabilitate back into the community. We assist people in living vocationally, meaningful, and socially satisfying lives by returning to work and school, living independently, participating in their community, and developing a social support network.
