The Clubhouse Model

​Venture House utilizes a unique approach to psychosocial rehabilitation, known as the Clubhouse Model.

The Clubhouse model is rooted in the concept that ongoing engagement in purposeful activity brings meaning to life and that lasting social connection promotes health and wellness.

Our members work side by side with staff in running the day-to-day operations, including intake and admissions, meal preparation, facility maintenance, program development and implementation, tutoring, as well as social and recreational activity.

Members are involved in decision-making at every level of the organization as well as serving on the Board of Directors.

Over the years, the number of Clubhouses has grown to 330 in 33 countries around the world.
