FOOT PRINT TO SUCCESS CLUBHOUSE INC
July 25, 2011

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
