WARSAW, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – The Bowen Center is looking to fill 115 jobs throughout northern and central Indiana. Based in Warsaw, the nonprofit mental health provider says the majority of the positions are for skills coaching.

The nonprofit says skills coaches receive continuous in-depth training when hired and are paired with mentors to help build on the training.

“Skills Coaches and Skills Technicians (Case Managers) help patients live successful lives by providing training and support,” said Cheryl Shepherd, Bowen Center director of human resources. “That may mean helping a child focus in the classroom or manage emotions, working in the community with a teen to help increase their self-esteem and social skills, or helping adults at home with parenting skills, independent living skills, and linking them to housing, employment, transportation and insurance options.”

Mary Gerard, vice president of human resources for Bowen Center, says the less restrictive educational requirements allow the organization to be more intentional about who is selected for these types of jobs. She says the goal is to create a career pathway for people who have a passion for the type of work performed at the nonprofit.
