Located in Klamath Falls in Southern Oregon within the shadow of Mt. Shasta, Dragonfly Transitions is a home away from home for young adults who are struggling with the transition to healthy, productive independence. The Homestead at Transitions is a 30-acre farm where students work on therapeutic issues in a quiet, rural setting. Farm products are used by students on the farm sold at the local farmer’s market. Homestead Farm Mentors provide a safe and supportive environment for students by holding boundaries and working with students on their treatment goals. Mentors teach life skills, self-awareness and communication; plan, lead and facilitate daily activities including farm chores, cooking as a group, and group meetings.

Compensation is based on experience, plus benefits that include 3 weeks paid vacation, health insurance, and 401k plan. The position does not include housing but does include some meals. A minimum one-year commitment is required.
