Dear Venture House Members
Venture House remains dedicated to providing the essential services you all have come to rely on and appreciate during these unprecedented times of physical distancing. While Venture House buildings have been closed, we remain active. Venture House is much more than brick and mortar; it is the collection of caring members and staff reaching out to support one another and help each member as they continue on their journey of recovery.
We want all members to know Venture House is here for you. Now is not the time to isolate, but rather to communicate and engage! While we are physically distant, we stay socially connected.
Venture House has been implementing new ways for members and staff to stay engaged and connected, which is indicative of our collective resilience.
We have created a Virtual Clubhouse, organized robust reach out efforts, and added an entire section with various resources and useful information for COVID-19 on our website.
Please use the buttons below to navigate some of the various pages within our COVID-19 Response section. This section includes information on the virus and Venture House’s response, food resources, a page to submit requests for assistance, information about the Virtual Clubhouse and how to join, indoor wellness activities, and much more!
