Union Station Clubhouse is a non-profit clubhouse-model psychiatric rehabilitation program for men and women with mental illness who are 18 years and older living in Fayette County. Through our day program our members gain the practical experience they need to work and live more independently. Because many of our members begin with little confidence and/or little or no work history, the first step toward developing job skills is participation in the day program's work units, designed to help members use and strengthen their abilities by contributing to the operation of the clubhouse. Working side-by-side with staff and other members, participants learn the importance of accepting responsibility, not only as a step toward self-reliance, but also because other are depending on them.
Transitional Employment Program (TEP)
After members learn to work in the Clubhouse units, they are given the opportunity to work in paying jobs in the community through the Transitional Employment Program (TEP). The TEP introduces those who have never worked or who have not worked in many years to the work field. Union Station Clubhouse provides the opportunities and the moral support needed to build members' confidence, skills, and stamina.
We sponsor outings to local eateries and attractions, as well as evening, weekend, and holiday hours as scheduled
