Lee, who was not long ago roaming the streets with his mental illness looking for food and a warm place to stay during the day, recently obtained a full-time job! More members continue to request services, but we are now at the point where we need more staff to support these requests. We also need a larger space to accommodate increasing numbers of members participating in our work-ordered day.
The clubhouse has saved my life in a lot of ways. It has given me an escape from isolation and resources to help me in the real world.
It is most advantageous when suffering from mental illness to fellowship with like-minded people and have the help and encouragement of staff and members at the clubhouse. Staff are also available to facilitate employment outcomes.
The Seattle Clubhouse is super awesome. They have meaningful activities and good food. My favorite activities include going to Mariner’s games, game night (I played chess that day), free pizza, and going to a park to have KFC. I would highly recommend it to anyone because this place rocks.
Clubhouse has given me a community and a place to go where I feel supported and cared about. They check-in on me when I’m feeling down and celebrate with me when times are good. I truly appreciate Seattle Clubhouse.
