Venture House has been a wonderful place for me to meet people with similar mental health issues and life situations. It has also been a place for me to keep out of trouble. They have jobs and housing opportunities that I can choose from. The clubhouse helps motivate me to try and be more open to others. The volunteer work here has helped me become more proactive. I hope that the foundation here will never wither away because it is a great place for people with mental illnesses to cope with their health problems and build their self-esteem.
