 Members have access to several specialized units to manage each club's work as well as to learn and master critical vocational skills. This approach ensures cooperation, inclusion, and shared responsibility. It also allows each member to be productive despite his or her disability. Because of the importance of work to gaining a sense of purpose and self-esteem, work and work-related activities are a primary focus as the clubhouses.

SERVICES FOR THE HOMELESS

 Much more than a program or social service, a clubhouse is a community of people who are working together to achieve a common goal. This opportunity to be a part of a successful working community is restorative and builds dignity and self-esteem. Members gain access to opportunities  that connect them with the community, employment, education, and friendships, which enable them to take ownership of their recovery.
