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

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.

As a volunteer for Foot Print to Success Clubhous, I have had the opportunity to see it's members grow in many ways. They take pride in the Clubhouse. Many have learned new respect for themselves in the talents they are discovering that they posess. This is a place for them to explore their social skills and prepare for the workforce.
Some here say that they now have a sense of belonging.
