Our Dedicated Staff
As both a healing community and an actual working community, our dedicated staff members are integral to our success. In addition to their individual qualifications, the CooperRiis Healing Community staff members bring experience and desire as clinicians, coaches, teachers, advisors, musicians and guides.
As of May 2018, the CooperRiis Healing Community employs over 160 full and part-time staff (including part and volunteers) that serve 36 residents at the Farm, Mill Spring/Tryon location, 24 residents at the Asheville Center, 85Z, and over 40 residents in our Community Program, located in Asheville and Tryon. Our talented and devoted staff is chosen for their kindness, for their ability to believe in and have hope for our residents, and for their mental health expertise and ability to find and appreciate the strengths of vulnerable people.
Many of our staff have expressed that working at CooperRiis is a ‘calling’ for them. Please let us know if you, too, might like to be considered for employment or volunteering by emailing us.
