My life was very chaotic and I was tired of being lonely and not having a life. The first time i walked through the doors I had a complete panic attack. I walked in talked with [Clubhouse Director] Rich Meyer and walked out shaking like a leaf, I was way outside my comfort zone. About a month later I worked up the gumption to come in again. I observed an watched and slowly moved past my anxiety. Rich really made me feel welcome, like I was needed and part of something. Now, I have done a 180 turn around. - Dave H
I didn’t believe there was a place for people with mental illness, but I came and it was very nice... They helped me get a job. It had been 3-4 years since I had worked. Now I work at the college cleaning the dorms. It is going good. Clubhouse is a nice place to come if you need it. - Vera M
In Clubhouse I found a family of people who wouldn’t judge me and would love me unconditionally. Being a Clubhouse member has helped me by being a place where I could be more social and create healthy boundaries. Clubhouse was also supportive in getting me out of homelessness.
