Turning Leaf is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to providing support services to those experiencing intellectual challenge and mental illness in the communities we serve. The support services we offer youth and adults living with intellectual challenge and mental illness are only successful because they are made up of skilled community members, the kind of people who listen and care when no one else will. It is through them there is hope, a chance to empower change for those who experience the day-today struggles of living with mental illness: discrimination, poverty, stigma, isolation and loneliness.

“It feels good to be part of something that’s trying to make a change and make things better for people.” – Turning Leaf Employee

If you feel our person-centered approach speaks to you or that you thrive in a supportive work environment, apply today and create positive change in a world that marginalizes and stigmatizes mental illness.

We greatly appreciate your interest in working at Turning Leaf. Human Resources will contact you if we wish to move forward with your application. We do not accept follow-up calls or respond to voicemails or emails from applicants.
