The Clubhouse Model

A Community-Based Approach

Gateway is a Clubhouse Model rehabilitation program. This internationally accredited Clubhouse Model provides a restorative environment for adults living with persistent and severe mental illnesses such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

The individuals at Gateway aren’t patients or clients—they’re members. We help our members lead normal and productive lives by offering opportunities to increase social and vocational skills, build relationships, and obtain education, employment, and housing.

Thanks to Gateway, Elliott Found Hope

“People know my name, my talents, my interests, and what I want to do with my life. The Clubhouse is a place where you can let go of your anger and sadness and people care about you. It is somewhere where you can find friends who are like you. With this kind of community, you can achieve your life goals.”
