Self-Starting Creative Opportunities For People in Employment, otherwise known as SSCOPE, is a non-profit community based casual and part-time employment service.
OUR MISSION & VISION:
Our members, men and women who are consumers of any mental health services, use and develop their working skills within the community.
In doing so, our members provide service to home and business owners, non-profit agencies, community groups and associations. Our members are provided with opportunities to:
*Empower themselves with individual and group work projects
*Increase their self-confidence
*Renew their social skills and encourage the development of a social network
*Contribute to the community in a positive way
*In return the community receives beneficial and quality services at a reasonable cost.
By working together we not only encourage a productive work force, but we also work together to widen our horizons for a more integrated community.
SSCOPE is a registered charitable non-profit organization whose mission is to assist in the rehabilitation of consumers of mental health services by providing gainful casual employment.
SSCOPE achieves its mission through a variety of activities, including job finding, supported employment, self-help advocacy, social interaction, skills-training and community education about mental health and employment issues.
How To Get Involved With Us
Become a Worker-Member.
SSCOPE has but one requirement for eligibility as a worker-member. The person applying must be a consumer of mental health services.
SSCOPE matches the requirements of the customers with the abilities of the members. After screening and assessment by SSCOPE staff, the members are matched with the work assignments for which they are best suited.
A support worker will accompany the worker-member. Members may work one-on-one with a support worker, or as part of a group of three or four members.
