Mission Statement

The mission of David’s Harp is "to provide a warm, friendly and peer-supportive environment in which adults with a major mental illness, regardless of their age, gender, sexual orientation, religion or race, come together to achieve an improved quality of life and the highest possible level of independence in the community."

Description

David’s Harp was founded in 1978 through the grassroots efforts of members of the Parkrose United Methodist Church and over 100 volunteers and mental health professionals, making it the first (and oldest) operation of its kind in Multnomah County. David’s Harp is a secular and independent nonprofit serving low- and no-income adults who have a severe and persistent mental illness.

Our mission is "to provide a friendly and peer-supportive environment in which adults with a major mental illness come together to achieve an improved quality of life and the highest possible level of independence in the community."

We achieve this mission by providing a daytime clubhouse setting where clients are provided with socialization and skill-building activities such as art and music therapy, occupational therapy, gardening, cooking, meal-sharing, cultural events, and daily community outings. David’s Harp services reduce re-hospitalization, recidivism, and chronic homelessness among the mentally ill.
