Charlene or “Char” as we here know her at Innercept, started working in a role for the administrative side of Innercept. After a time, she realized she would really like to become part of the team that worked in our programs with the residents. After talking with the Human Resources Director, she began working at the Young Adult Intensive Program as a direct care staff. Char soon realized that this was exactly what she was to be doing. She enjoys working with the residents to encourage them as she mentors and guides them, while showing them she supports them in their journey.
Char has moved to working at the Stabilization portion of the program, and has become a Lead Staff. She is directly involved with the Young Adults who may enter a crisis and need some time to recover or work to enable them to re-boot.
Before working at Innercept, Char home-schooled her two children all the way up through high school. She has worked in several different jobs and enjoys working with others. Prior to Innercept, she was involved in a recovery program as well as mentoring women. Char likes spending time outdoors and time with horses. She also enjoys spending time with her two grandchildren.
