MHCCI is is a local nonprofit that helps adults managing mental health. We are looking for a volunteer to spend a few hours a week with a staff member and House members on our weekly outings. Beacon House goes on adventures to Shamrock Park, the beach, and various organizations we are in partnership with. We would not need the volunteer to drive our van, just participate as a second chaperone for approximately 10 members, so that we can be out in the community more frequently. Please reach out if you're interested!

MHCC provides a safe environment, promoting wellness, for individuals managing mental health.
MHCC provides opportunities to enhance emotional health through situation-solution discussions and support groups, goal setting and performance sessions, a friendly caring atmosphere, and social activities to assist in problem-solving. We also offer vocational and educational training opportunities such as computer training, cooking, nutrition, creative arts, self-esteem building activities, independent living skills, etc. Social and recreational activities offered include beach/picnic outings, theater, library, physical fitness, sporting events, bowling, visits to local attractions.
At MHCC, peers support one another in reciprocal relationships. Peers have "been there, done that" and can relate to others who are now in a similar situation. Research has shown that peer-run self-help groups yield improvement in psychiatric symptoms resulting in decreased hospitalization, larger social support networks and enhanced esteem and social functioning.
We'll work with your schedule.
