Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: With three hours to give, volunteers can sponsor and enjoy a monthly game night in which members, staff, and volunteers play games, enjoy one another's company, and eat a tasty meal.

Programs: Side by Side follows the Clubhouse model of rehabilitation. This model was developed in the 1940s by and for individuals with disabilities to help them support each other, find and keep jobs, and to live in their communities instead of institutions. This model has been standardized by an international body, IBICA, of which Side by Side is a member. At our Clubhouse, Monday through Friday, from 9-3, members follow a workday schedule. In the mornings, they volunteer for duties which facilitate the operations of their organization. These duties include clerical work, maintenance tasks, and culinary responsibilities. In the afternoon, they voluntarily attend programs with topics such as job readiness, personal adjustment, yoga, and computer basics. In addition to the workday schedule, social outings and recreational activities are planned and executed by the members.

Mission:
Side by Side Brain Injury Clubhouse is a bridge of support for a person with a brain injury to transition from medical patient to contributing community member.
Results:
Since its inception in 2000, Side by Side has:
- Served over 350 members
- Completed a successful capital campaign which resulted in the renovation of an accessible, welcoming space and program expansion
- Invested in outcome management programs to accurately capture the fruits of our labors
- Held a successful special event in which the Clubhouse earned revenue, cultivated community support, and the members and staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves
