Background: When people experience substance use, mental health issues, and housing instability, having access to available, high-quality, and flexible service and support options is essential. Many communities and systems have a limited continuum of service options and are often unprepared to meet the needs of everyone who needs help-in ways that are most useful and relevant to their lives. These challenges are worsened by structural and systematic racism, mass incarceration, stigma, and other forms of discrimination and injustice. Many services, programs, and policies systematically discriminate against people with diverse racial, ethnic, and gender identities. At C4 Innovations, we start with racial equity because racism permeates every institution and system in the US, denying millions the right to a fair and just society in which they can thrive and prosper.
About C4 Innovations (C4): C4 is a values- and mission-driven, woman-owned small business that advances equitable access to recovery, wellness, and housing stability for youth and adults who are systematically marginalized. We are committed to reducing disparities and achieving equitable outcomes. Through partnership with organizations, communities, systems, and people with lived and living experience, we incorporate person-centered, recovery-oriented, and trauma-informed approaches to understand factors that drive inequities and achieve transformative outcomes. When all people-regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity-are able to access and engage in quality care, the results are healthier individuals, families, and communities. We put people first.
C4 is committed to creating and maintaining a diverse workforce. We actively encourage applicants from minority racial and ethnic backgrounds, as well as historically marginalized groups; this includes, but is not limited to, lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, people who identify as transgender or non-binary, people living with disabilities or serious mental health conditions, and lived experiences of homelessness or recovery from substance use disorder. C4 is an affirmative action-equal opportunity employer.
Research suggests that individuals who are systemically marginalized may self-select out of opportunities if they do not meet 100% of the job requirements. We encourage individuals who believe they have the skills and experience necessary to thrive in the role to apply.
