2016 Ministry Partner Support: $1,000
California Clubhouse strives to give those whose lives have been disrupted by mental illness an opportunity to experience meaningful work and relationships as they reintegrate into the broader community.
The Clubhouse approach is effective because it develops and sustains Clubhouses that remain:
Holistic – Offering members opportunities for friendship, employment and education, and access to quality housing, medical and psychiatric services through a single caring and safe environment
Inclusive – Allowing members to follow the example of others who are achieving their personal aspirations and goals.
Sustaining – Helping members become productive participants of society over the course of their lives.
Responsive – Dedicated to continuous improvement based on direct feedback from members.
Cost Effective – Providing members, families and communities significantly more value for money than other approaches.
