A BIT ABOUT US
The Seattle Clubhouse is a safe space where members living with mental illness can step out of the shadows of social isolation and into the light of a healing community. Through meaningful relationships, our Clubhouse members have real opportunities to reintegrate into society by becoming gainfully employed, pursuing education, and attaining stable housing. Our umbrella organization, HERO House NW, has a 13-year history of serving King County and has a mission to facilitate expansion of Clubhouse to every community in our region. With Clubhouses throughout the Puget Sound, there will be a network of communities that provide Hope, Empowerment, Relationships, and Opportunity to those living with serious and persistent mental illness.
Since the Seattle Clubhouse opened five-days per week back in August of 2018, it has proven to be a pivotal addition to the community to help end the homelessness crisis and move unhoused individuals with mental illness back into their lives. With a strong foundation of support from both Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission and the Downtown Seattle Association, Seattle Clubhouse is poised to move into the next phase of expanding their services to reach more people living with mental illness in the city. We at HERO House NW envision a world where people living with serious mental illness not only SURVIVE, but THRIVE in communities of hope and opportunity.
A vibrant Clubhouse program in Seattle will provide family members, friends, businesses, downtown stakeholders, and persons living with mental illness a low-cost option for gaining respect, hope and unlimited opportunity to access the same world of friendship, housing, education, and employment as the rest of the community.
