Residential Counselors at Vinfen ensure a safe, comfortable, supported home environment for people we serve.
As a Residential Counselor, you will provide direct support to people with psychiatric conditions, intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain injuries, or behavioral health challenges in a small group residential setting or an individual living arrangement.

In this role, you will develop close relationship with our residents, partnering with them, their families, friends, and support network to help them achieve their personal goals and build skills needed for greater independence. As a Residential Counselor, you will assist individuals to develop self-management skills, meal planning and preparation, and transportation to medical appointments.
