What is a Work-Ordered Day?

The cornerstone of HERO House NW is the pre-vocational Work-Ordered Day. Members are encouraged to strengthen their abilities and skills through voluntary participation in the daily tasks of clubhouse operation.

Members participate in administration, clerical, enrollment, orientation, hiring, training and evaluation of staff, public relations, advocacy, snack bar, kitchen operations, food prep, and service.

Working side-by-side with staff, members develop a sense of achievement which prepares them for workforce reentry via transitional and supported employment opportunities.
