The New View Society Clubhouse is a cooperative community designed to create a healthy environment where individuals recovering from mental illness can achieve the confidence and skills necessary to reach personal goals. Members help design the programs and contribute to creating an enjoyable environment through volunteering and taking part in recreational opportunities. The Clubhouse is unique in that it offers both work and friendship to all those who participate, regardless of their level of proficiency. We help support out member in their recovery through education, support, and social recreation.
