Welcome to Community House
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Community Engagement Initiative at Community House. It is a great privilege to be the Executive Director of such a thriving community of excellence, where high aspirations and a caring ethos of wellbeing are at the heart of what we do.
John W. Staley, a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist (CPRS), is the Executive Director of the 10-01 organization’s Agency Services, an organization providing community-based service initiatives for those at all levels of our Community. Holding an undergraduate degree from Appalachian State University in Social Theory, and post-graduate work in Educational Research at Lenoir-Rhyne University, he has extensive experience in Complex Adaptive Networks and has worked in various capacities in the Human Services field since 1984. John is a native Tarheel and has strong ties to the community.
Community House is a wonderful place to work. My colleagues are smart, kind, and supportive. The facility is well organized and efficient. But what keeps me coming back are the wonderful members I get to lead and learn from every day. They are in the right hands.
Early on John’s commitment to seeing new initiatives and unique opportunities resulted in the completion of the Agency’s Facility House, which provided a space for Development and Creativity. Before this the only option was Europe or the West Coast and John’s strong commitment to Community Initiative resulted in one more opportunity for a dynamic creative environment to get a stakeholder community engaged.
Another of John’s Community Initiative goals involves facilities that can deal with an aging population that will need foresightful planning and special considerations over time.
John is ahead of the curve in founding a Green Agency as well, advocating for the conversion of the tons of paperwork generated by the agency into more efficient electronic data. This affords us the statistical analytics that will put us ahead.
John’s highly endorsed Creative Director and Developmental Consulting skills and Systems Theory knowledge have been instrumental in securing innovative and crucial acclaim for our Commitment to Excellence, Community Initiative, and Leadership Context platforms. The following are some of John’s uniquely qualified merits:
As you can see, everything about our Community Initiative and Commitment to Excellence platforms revolve around these special interests of our Executive Director and CEO

Anne Onymous (LtRs)
Day Program Services Coordinator
for Service Programs to include Innovative Treatment Modalities, Dynamic Modular Classrooms, and Supportive Employment Program
Our core logistics engine is crucially dependent upon Anne’s long and knowledgeable experience (20 years) and her programmatic ambassadorship is what drives our Leadership Context and Commitment to Excellence Initiatives.
Anne holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Capital and a Master’s Degree in Generative Engineering from Lakewood University. . .
A committed family of professionals
Anne has been instrumental in guiding our Team Building efforts as we move toward our Community Engagement Initiatives powered by our Commitment to Excellence.
From her Leadership Context she is able to project Thought Leadership and Influence into our Professional Network Community Liaison. It is through her strong but supportive nurture that the whole project has come together. She has assembled a great team but we have appreciated her experienced leadership.
Leadership in Advocacy is about empowerment: giving bright, dedicated people the opportunity to have an impact. People want to make their ideas happen; being listened to and making a contribution. Anne commands great Advocacy Leadership in these respects.
Central to our ability to provide for a more inclusive environment for community integration is our Supportive Employment Program. With a wealth of Integrative Community Initiatives, we have the flexibility and connections to appropriate relevant contexts in the satisfaction of particular strengths and needs.
In addition to the current management of logistical transfer, we’re moving toward a Reintegration and Rehabilitation Initiative which includes:
- Helping our Members Integrate into Community House and to the Community at large
- Getting appropriate housing or arranging for apartment placements as needed, initially or over time
- Reintegration into Community House (and/or Community) following Crisis Stabilization or Hospitalization
- Completing trainings and getting a GED, or applying to Community College and other Educational Opportunities, etc.
While some of these duties are currently assigned to other facets of the continuum in a broad sense, we feel like we know our Members best and are able to offer the personal touch and caring support that distinguishes our commitment to service excellence and leads to our renown Member satisfaction; and to deliver this kind of support at a granular level on a day-to-day basis.
Our award winning Peer development program is centered around the promotion of our successful graduates and community engagement exemplaries. We are proud to honor successful achievement in the Peer Movement program by development into the Peer Associate track or via the Peer Intern track.
Peers who are enlisted in our Peer Development program receive professional supervision and attend state-certified courses through which they accrue credits towards occupational placement in one of our many Community Engagement Initiatives. We are the first in the Nation to develop such a program and other programs and CSBs are training with us to develop and augment their programs in the future.
