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!
