Home Leadership - Introducing Jake Janas
Introducing Jake Janas, a compassionate and dedicated house operator with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the field of aftercare and addiction recovery. He currently oversees four sober homes in Springfield and Westfield, providing support and guidance to residents on their recovery journey.
Before joining Vanderburgh Communities, Jake worked as an aftercare coordinator at a local CSS program, where he referred residents to the program and established himself as a trusted member of the community. His biggest motivation for taking on the role of house operator was the opportunity to name one of the homes after his best friend, who lost his life to an overdose. This act of remembrance allowed him to pay tribute to his friend while helping others on their path to recovery.
As an operator, Jake values the input and autonomy of his house mentors, allowing them to run the homes in their own unique ways while providing support and guidance when needed. He is passionate about helping residents along their journey and fostering a family-like atmosphere in each home. As he says, “this is a kind of small family for a short period of time, so you have to treat each other that way”.
Some Vanderburgh House sober homes are independently owned and operated by Chartered Operators of the Vanderburgh House sober living system. Please visit Vanderburgh Communities for more information on how to become a sober living Operator with the Vanderburgh House system.
