Miele’s Parachute, a Parachute NYC Crisis Respite Center, is a respite center for persons in crisis who need more support than can be provided in their homes. At this site, professional peer and clinical staff provide 24-hour support for a stay of as little as one night or as long as two weeks. The Parachute NYC team will build relationships with those we serve, their families and other important people in their lives to help them get through a crisis, manage future crises and move toward recovery thereby avoiding hospitalization.

The Peer Respite Worker reports to the Director of the Crisis Respite Center (CRC) and will provide services directly to the CRC guests. The Peer Respite Worker will complete the Intentional Peer Support (IPS), Need Adapted Treatment Model (NATM) and Peer Health Navigation (PHN) trainings provided as part of the Parachute NYC grant and will practice according to the principles of recovery oriented and trauma informed service delivery including IPS, NATM and PHN.


Experience as a recipient of mental health services and a willingness to share personal, practice experience, knowledge and first-hand insight to benefit program enrollees. Preference will be given to graduates of a core peer training program.
