ASAP: Alliance for Substance Abuse Progress in Bartholomew County


ASAP Hub Manager

Purpose and Scope of Job

The ASAP Hub Manager is responsible for the start-up and ongoing operation of the ASAP Hub, located in the United Way Center building, where individuals and families can get information and support for recovery from substance use disorders. As a result of specializing in recovery-related information and support, the ASAP Hub will receive many referrals from service providers, the criminal justice system, social service agencies, churches, employers, and other organizations for individuals needing more support than the referring entity is capable of providing. The ASAP Hub staff will include the experiences and skills to understand needs, and the knowledge to provide helpful information and link clients to existing and emerging community resources.

The ASAP Hub Manager is responsible for hiring/managing the ASAP Hub Staff and defining the policies and procedures necessary for operating a recovery resource center. The paid positions that will report to the Hub Manager include the ASAP Volunteer Services Manager, who will be responsible for defining the many Hub volunteer roles, including volunteer recruiting, training and scheduling, and the ASAP Hub Recovery Specialist, who will assist clients in choosing the best recovery process options.

The ASAP Hub Manager will lead a Hub implementation team during Q1 and Q2 2019 to establish priorities, design the space, determine the volunteer roles and training requirements, and develop the business plan (including performance metrics). The implementation team will consist of the Hub staff and other ASAP team members, community partners, and individuals in recovery. The goal is for the Hub to begin operation on a limited basis by 5/1/19, and to be fully operational by 7/1/19. After implementation, the Hub Manager will be accountable to ensure quality services for clients/members and community partners, and continuous improvement of the operation.

In addition to the operation of the ASAP Hub, the Hub Manager will also be a visible/vocal advocate for substance use disorder recovery in the community and participate as a key member of the ASAP Leadership Team.
