At Becoming Independent, we strive to create a culture of inclusion, teamwork, and community. Our employees know that at the end of each day they’ve made a positive impact our community — and the lives of others. Through our activities and employee recognition efforts, we ensure that everyone who steps into Becoming Independent feels included in our purpose. The Young Professionals Network named us “Business of the Year” and BI was named by North Bay Business Journal as one of the “Best Places to Work” for seven years and counting.

Here’s why:


Comprehensive Benefits

We offer robust medical coverage to keep you happy and healthy at work and in life. Coverage includes Medical, Dental, Vision, Life Insurance, Long-Term Disability and more.


Paid Time Off

We offer comprehensive paid time off to accommodate vacations and those times when life throws you a curve-ball.


Wellness Focus

On-site fitness room, gym membership stipend. Plus massages and a fresh fruit and veggie garden if you need some pampering.


Meaningful Work

Know that at the end of everyday, you’ve made a positive impact on your community and the lives of others.


Dynamic Culture

We strive to create a culture of inclusion, where everyone’s talents are celebrated.

I am very blessed. This is my second home. This is family. By far the best job I have ever had.

We go out in the community and the participants have their own jobs. They’re trying to make a living for themselves and they do a great job at it!  We are there to help them achieve that.
