THE CLUBHOUSE FOR SPECIAL NEEDS

To provide a safe and fun place for teens and young adults with mild/moderate intellectual/physical challenges -- an opportunity for education, socialization and independence in a recreational atmosphere.
We started as an after-school program with 4 young people in 2006. We leased a1727 sq. ft. portion of a commercial building and grew to 12. Our young people continued to age and now we had to open an All Day Program. Need to expand to a larger facility. In 2013 we raised $100k in 3 months and put down a deposit for a 7,151 sq. ft. facility. Our very own building [and the banks]. The community called it a "A GOD THING" - a nucleus of 12 people and their families/friends raised $100K. In 3 1/2 months we grew from 12 teens and young adults with intellectual/physical challenges to 41. Amazing! THE PROBLEM Our young people continue to age - 13 to 43. That's a huge age span. We need to expand again but this time to build a SECOND facility to break up the group to denote students vs adults. We would still offer what we already offer but include a full gymnasium. We are unique being an unstructured environment, lots of color and murals, allowing our young freedom to be themselves, and more. We are expanding to provide for our aging population because they have no place to go. We can continue to support and help them expand their life and educational experience: Education, Socialization and Independence. MISSION STATEMENT: The Clubhouse for Special Needs provides a safe and fun place for teenagers and young adults with intellectual/physical challenges. It provides opportunity for education, socialization and independence in a recreational atmosphere. NOTE: All funds raised will be used according to the needs of the organization. Our verse: "...exceedingly abundantly above all we ask or think..." Ephesians 3:20a.
