Work Ordered Day
When you enter the Carriage House, you find a place of business. The work-ordered day engages members and staff together in the running of the Clubhouse. You will see members and staff working side by side to make lunch for 50 people, answer phones, enter data into the computers, administer a community bank, bake food for the snack bar, and literally everything else done in the community.
Working in the clubhouse is more than just regaining skills. The work gives everyone a chance to help others, make friends, and start living a life of meaning and hope. This supportive community naturally encourages people to set and achieve other goals in life.
The Clubhouse focuses on strengths, talents and abilities; therefore the work-ordered day does not include medication clinics, day treatment programs or therapy programs. The Carriage House is open five days a week and parallels typical working hours. Work is designed to help members regain self-worth, purpose and confidence and is not intended to be job-specific training.
