For Adults: Social Clubs & Friendship Club

A social club can help you meet people, explore new interests, start friendships, and discover a different side of yourself.

If you have struggled to go into the community and socialize comfortably, a social club might open a wonderful door for you.

We host daytime and evening meet-ups which offer relaxed (non-structured) activities as well as planned events, such as cooking classes, lunch and a movie, yoga, tai chi, and art classes.

Some of our social clubs are designed for adults with mental illness and others are for adults with developmental disabilities.

The Social Club provides programs on Saturdays and Sundays for adults recovering from a mental illness. For dates/times, see the online calendar.

The Social Club for the Deaf is a weekly group for those recovering from a mental illness. For dates/times, see the online calendar.

The Friendship Club is a weekly evening program designed for adults with a developmental disability who enjoy the company of others, are comfortable in a group, are willing to travel with the group in a van, and are open to trying new experiences. Dinner is included and optional activities may include yoga, movies, dancing among others. There is a fee of $85 per calendar year. For days/times, see website Calendar.
