Palm House On-Property Meetings
Palm House offers a soft skills work readiness and life skills class designed for ex-offenders, although non-offenders will benefit from the program as well. The Work Readiness/Life Skills Training is a 12 session certification for which the client will earn a "Work Readiness Certificate" upon completion. This certificate is very "attractive" in the eyes of potential employers.
Prior to completion, all clients must have a sponsor. Sponsorship is crucial to providing one in recovery with guidance, understanding and continual encouragement on their continued journey in recovery.
The Palm House Recovery Centers, Inc. strives to keep our program fees at an affordable market rate. Clients who assist landscaping, warehouse sorting and stocking, maintenance on property and community jobs, contribute to our ability to keep the weekly rent at a minimum.
Clients that have assigned Community Service through probation, can perform their community service here at the Palm House.
An 8 week certified meeting for those who have court requirements or generally feel that they would benefit. Recovery management will be held during mandatory property meetings. Meetings are generally conducted by senior residents, but staff may facilitate these meetings during the evening in small group format.
