Who We Are
Ora Clubhouse is a free, community-based membership organization aimed at helping people living with and recovering from mental illness to regain a respected place in society.
The Work-Ordered Day
The Foundation of the Clubhouse Model
Our Clubhouse operates as a community where each day models a traditional workday. Members work side-by-side with Clubhouse staff to complete daily activities like preparing lunches, running our in-house bank, producing a daily news video and monthly newsletters, maintaining the Clubhouse, and assuming responsibility for attendance, billing and statistical information. Members have the opportunity to learn the needs of the Clubhouse to use their skills and abilities. By participating in the Work-Ordered Day, a sense of structure and purpose is restored in member’s lives. This sense of purpose is crucial and it’s what makes the Work-Ordered Day the operational foundation of the Clubhouse Model. Once members have fully immersed themselves in the Work-Ordered Day and are motivated with their newfound confidence, they are in a great place to start participating in the many other opportunities that Ora Clubhouse has to offer.
At the Ora Clubhouse, we strive to rebuild confidence, purpose, and community for adults in mental health recovery, fostering a peer-support, self-help population. Our mission is to end social and economic isolation by providing and supporting quality Clubhouse rehabilitation programs. Led by our Executive Director, Leda Perez, we are committed to creating a safe and supportive environment where individuals can thrive on their journey to recovery. Recently, Leda had the opportunity to share insights and experiences in an interview with Wiley Productions’ esteemed podcast, ‘Network of Excellence.’ This podcast serves as a valuable platform for local business owners, offering insightful conversations, success stories, and expert advice to enhance their entrepreneurial endeavors. Through partnerships like these, we aim to enrich the lives of our members and the broader community. Join us at the Ora Clubhouse as we work together to promote healing, empowerment, and connection.
