This on-site program is a hub of activity at Sanctuary House, based on the Fountain House Clubhouse model. Members participate in the work-ordered day, consisting of the following tasks. Within the work-ordered day we have various work areas, or units, where our members work.  

Member Services/Kitchen/Snack Bar Unit

In this unit members can work on the following skill-building activities:

  • Cooking (daily breakfast & lunch)
  • Wait service
  • Inventory control
  • Meal planning/grocery shopping
  • Money management
  • Household cleaning
  • Cashiering
Employment/Prevocational Support

The Clubhouse offers its own supported and independent employment programs to assist members in securing, sustaining, and bettering their employment. As a defining characteristic of Clubhouse supported employment, the Clubhouse maintains a relationship with the working member and the employer. Members and staff in partnership determine the type, frequency, and location of desired supports.

Business Services Unit

In this unit members are given opportunities to work on the following skills: 

  • Bookkeeping
  • Office organization/administrative duties
  • Inventory management
  • Reception desk duties
  • Computer skills
Social Programming

When work in our units is complete, social programming is a wonderful way for our members and staff to strengthen their bonds. We offer social programs two to three times per month during evenings and on weekends. The social program focuses on:

  • Relationship building
  • Planning social and recreational activities
  • Participating in planned community social events

Sanctuary House provides access to wellness activities including YMCA sessions and on-site exercise sessions with an instructor. Along with basic aerobic exercise and stretching, we offer yoga classes to improve balance, strength and coordination.
