TSINY has always believed that recovery is tied to the workplace. We support affirmative business as a way for consumers to learn the skills needed to compete in the workplace. Recovery is an integral outcome of this model. Workers are trained to perform tasks that employers would value. We create our own niche for consumers in the workplace. With this in mind, TSINY has created our own affirmative business for the Queens Community.
The program offers training and employment opportunities for individuals with a mental illness or co-occurring disorder and a history of homelessness who have historically faced obstacles in obtaining and sustaining employment due to lack of supports, training and the stigma of mental illness.
Opportunities are available for:
- Part-time transitional employment that enables development of a documentable work history while addressing work adjustment/attitude issues.
- Training in the variety of positions involved in working in and running a retail operation.
Monday through Friday: 9 A.M. – 7 P.M.
Saturday: 10 A.M. – 4 P.M.
Sunday: 10 A.M. – 3 P.M.
For more information, please contact the Director of Employment Services.
