About POTENTIAL PLACE SOCIETY
The work-mediated relationships that develop between the staff and members throughout the Clubhouse are the benchmark for clubhouses throughout the world. Staff and members working together assure that all service functions are carried out each day. Members are encouraged to assist. We offer a place where members can practice managing their symptoms without fear of negative consequences. We provide four different types of employment opportunities for members: from group, transitional, supported to self employment. Social events are scheduled primarily on evenings and weekends. Clubhouses give members a place to go, something to do, and supportive people to be with. We also offer a variety of housing opportunities for members. ”. This program consists of members acting as their own property managers. In essence; like a condominium association without any fees and restricting politics. All decisions made at meetings around program decisions are made through consensus.
