Become a Member of Vincent House

Join a community of friendship, support and hope

Get Your Life Back

Find recovery through meaningful activity and employment

Are you looking for a community of hope? Vincent House is a safe place that offers adults living with mental illness hope and opportunities to achieve their full potential.

Vincent House is here to help individuals with a mental illness return to work with dignity by providing a recovery through work program.

Our program is flexible depending on your needs. 

Note: Prospective members must have a severe or persistent mental health diagnosis, and are typically referred to Vincent House by a clinician or other mental health resource

1. Get started with a tour

The path to becoming a member of Vincent House starts with a visit to one of our beautiful locations.

See the facility, meet members, talk to the staff, and discuss what our program can offer.

At the end of the tour, prospective members will meet with the Clubhouse Director. Prospective members will be able to talk through why they are interested in becoming a member, and learn more about what Clubhouse has to offer.

If both parties agree Vincent House is a good fit, the prospective member leaves with an eligibility form and application for membership.

2. Our application process

The eligibility form and application for membership needs to be completed by the prospective member and their referring mental health professional.

When the membership application is completed, and eligibility requirements are satisfied (i.e.: diagnosis is confirmed and signed by mental health professional), that prospective member is offered an invitation to membership.

Upon acceptance of membership, an orientation day is scheduled with the new member to welcome them, and help them have a successful transition into their Clubhouse.

3. Gain skills to change your life

Membership is voluntary and for life. The saying “once a member, always a member” holds true for all Clubhouses.

Members and staff work side by side as colleagues to perform the work that is important to their community. Instead of traditional talk therapy, members and staff share responsibility for running every aspect of the Clubhouse.

The benefits our members experience with the daily work at their Clubhouse includes cooking meals, administration, job search and event planning, and we also provide structured and non-structured social activities.

4. Find your place through socialization, meaningful activity and work

Find a place where you are wanted, needed and valued.

Work side by side with the Vincent House staff. Gain real world employment skills. Get help obtaining employment, returning to school, or locating stable housing, and more.

Vincent House improves social and vocational skills – and unlocks talents and abilities of those living with mental illnesses.

We do this through our commitment to creating a structured environment of empathy, friendship, trust, safety and opportunity.

Members are encouraged, supported and celebrated as they regain their confidence, independence, and their potential to thrive.
