Footprint to Success Clubhouse in Pompano Beach, Florida filled a great need in the community when it was started a couple of years ago. It is a model based on Fountainhouse in NYC. I was thrilled when it was started here as funding for mental health services in Florida seems to be at the bottom of the 50 states. I recently visited Fountainhouse in NYC and I wish Footprint to Success had the financial support they have there- I was told the one in NYC was given a donation in the millions of dollars. There they have weekend and evening activities and it has 5 floors and a farm in NJ with alopaca (animals that look like llamas) and organic vegetables. Lets give Footprint more support and maybe it too can eventually offer more services and get more community support like the one in NYC which has been there since 1948.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get the local community to give it more financial support and more national recognition. I would like to see it have evening and weekend social activities and support from professional organizations like the American Lung Association or the American Diabetes Association. Also more supportive transitional employment opportunities from the community and maybe have more social workers working there.

Footprint to Success Is located in Pompano Beach near the Tri-rail and near bus route 34 so it's convenient for those who don't drive. It is based on Clubhouse International which is clientele run. The clients can go to the community garden if they want to and help with organic gardening. From there they use the vegetables and fruits to prepare meals at the clubhouse. There are culinary duties like shopping for food and gardening supplies, preparing the weekly menu, and business duties like financial data being entered into the computers, also media and social planning is done. It's an excellant pre-vocation place for those with serious and chronic mental illness. I love it!

Going to the clubhouse trains me for work and keeps me busy with different projects. I got one on one help from staff, learned about gardening, video mechanics, and different computer programs. The food is excellent tasting and I look forward to coming here.

I really enjoy coming to Foot Print to Success Clubhouse. I have been a Member for ten months and have made a lot of new friends. Thanks to the Clubhouse, I have a volunteer job at Boca Raton Hospital, where I am acquiring workplace and life skills that will help me obtain paid employment in the future. I like the experience of working there. It feels like a real job and I am busy all the time. When I am ready for a real job, the Clubhouse will help me achieve this goal. I am confident in their ability to find employment for me because they offer excellent career services and job coahcing.

I am a volunteer &mental health advocate for 25 years, since I joined the clubhouse my life has changed. The hands on activities with the clubhouse members , the relationship form and the mentoring I am able to do has been life transforming for me as a volunteer and for the members.
We are a big family where we accept each other and work towards becoming better people. I have seen many of our members that have been living for many years with the stigma of mental illness ,feel accepted, included and with hope for a better future. They come to our clubhouse with different reasons but the common factor for all is ; to be treated with respect and dignity in a safe environment. They find their potential and regain confidence to learn and work at the same time building new friends.
I will be always in gratitude for this experience, Sandra

If I had to make changes it will be not stressing out on how to get financial funding for our program, and concentrating in serving and offering opportunities .

My experience at the "foot print for success clubhouse" was a positive one. As a proffessional in the field of mental health, I was verry impressed in the the cossumers were involved in learning new skills. The club house shows how different a real clubhouse is from just a dropping center. Good job.

I referred my daughter to this organization and see the positive changes in her from her involvement. She has made new friends and developed her strengths in implementing and completing projects for the organization. Her social and interpersonal skills have also improved. I've shown members the keys to financial management and members have learned to manage their money better as a result.

I have been a part of the clubhouse since it first started, its given me lots of opportunities to increase my self esteem, build my confidence. Not only has it helped me with my self esteem, but I was able to go through the 6 to 9 months transitional employment. I am very thrilled to be apart of the Clubhouse.

I am a member at the Foot Print to Success Clubhouse. It's free to join and you get help with skilled people who are helpful in all different aspects of learning to use the computer.
