Vision House is a faith-based organization whose mission is to follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in working with the poor and homeless to promote positive transformation of their lives. While we are an equal opportunity employer, Christian faith is a prerequisite for employment at Vision House, based upon United States federal guidelines provided in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Motivated by our faith in Jesus, we serve homeless men, women and children as a demonstration of God’s unconditional love for all people. Foundational to our work is the commitment to a shared faith by our staff, board of directors, volunteers and interns, and a common understanding of how that faith is lived out day-to-day. As our faith is at the heart of all we do, applicants are asked to commit to uphold our Statement of Faith, Mission Statement (above) and Core Values. Our organization’s core values and mode of operations are based on a servant leadership model (servant leadership resources listed below).
What makes an effective and an engaged teacher?
“All great teachers are alike in a key way – they use their natural talents to the utmost whether they are aware of it or not.” (Liesveld & Miller, 2005)
Because we agree with the above statement, that great teachers are those who teach with their greatest talents and abilities, Vision House is commited to a strengths-based culture in which employees are encouraged to find their top 5 “signature themes”, or natural talents through the Gallup StrengthsFinder assessment. We encourage our staff to develop the ability to notice the positive impact of using their strengths in the classroom and we work together on professional development strategies that include strengths, both individually and collectively.
Each teacher’s top 5 strengths are listed in their bio.
