COVID-19 Response

Dear Venture House Community,

Due to COVID-19, Venture House has reduced our building capacity to guarantee the safety of members and staff. Venture House is open. We will continue to provide support and services throughout the duration of this unprecedented crisis. We ask that members contact staff to reserve a time to come in the the buildings. We require all who enter the buildings to wear a facemask and keep proper physical distance. All staff continue to work off-site and are available by phone, email and on social media (M – F, 9 AM- 5PM). Click here for the staff contact list.

We have also created a Virtual Clubhouse to engage members remotely in the work-ordered day. Please contact staff to get more information on how to access the Virtual Clubhouse. We encourage members to reach out to staff and one another.

If you feel overwhelmed, or need help coping outside of 9-5, you can contact NYC Well, a confidential 24/7 helpline, staffed by trained counselors. They can provide brief counseling and referrals to care in over 200 languages and other resources. Call 888-NYC-WELL (888-692-9355), Text “WELL” to 65173, or chat at nyc.gov/nycwell. You can also contact the disaster distress helpline at 800-985-5990 or text Talkwithus to 66746.

Stay healthy, stay safe and wash your hands.
