What We Do

Unlocking the skills, talents and abilities of those with mental illnesses

Our mission at Vincent House is to assist, promote, and celebrate individuals in their efforts to improve their social and vocational skills

We offer a path of recovery and hope for those with a mental illness.

At Vincent House we follow the philosophy of the Clubhouse Model which is an evidence based practice that started at Fountain House in New York City in the late 40’s.

Vincent House is intentionally organized to help our members develop the skills needed to be successful in their recovery. We do this through the Work Ordered Day, which parallels typical working hours, giving members the opportunity to work side by side with the staff in the overall operation of the Clubhouse.

Our Clubhouses are restorative communities that believe in the power of work and relationship building as an integral part of ones recovery.

The Clubhouse Model

The Clubhouse Model is built upon the belief that all members can recover from mental illness, and lead successful and meaningful lives


The Clubhouse experience is a proven cost-effective solution for the improvement of social and vocational skills

Contributors Recognition

The results of the Vincent House Clubhouse experience couldn’t be accomplished without corporate and philanthropic contributors

We offer our members a unique opportunity to meet their goals at their own pace, while most importantly, maintaining strong and meaningful relationships that believe in and promote HOPE.

Vincent House is committed to helping all of our members. Check out our Deaf and Hard of Hearing Policy here. Check out our HIPPA Policy here.

“At Vincent House I was made to feel cared for, needed and wanted, I developed confidence and learned to how to conduct myself.

I am no longer alone, but part of a loving community. I now have meaningful work, a social life, and a place to belong. Best of all, at 67 I have a future not just a past.”
