San Antonio Clubhouse is a community-oriented non-profit organization in San Antonio, TX whose mission is to provide community, opportunity and hope for adults diagnosed with mental illness using the evidence-based Clubhouse recovery model. This model of recovery supports adults by providing opportunities for our members to build relationships with others, and work towards their goals while contributing to the Clubhouse community. Our Clubhouse strives to be a direct reflection of the needs of our members and the abilities of our members and staff and does so through a variety of programmatic offerings, including but not limited to: our Clubhouse Career Program, which provides employment support to our members through job search assistance, resume help, mock interviews, and employer advocacy; a Nutrition and Wellness Program, which provides low-cost, subsidized, nutritious meals and snacks to members, physical wellness activities, and educational workshops; and Hydroponic Urban Growth (HUG), which operates a hydroponic farm capable of producing literal tons of vegetables per year.
