Description

The Clubhouse is a unique place where individuals can come to relearn skills through the work of the day. We like to think of the Clubhouse as our home away from home and the folks here are like family. For many the Clubhouse is the next step in transitioning from a patient back into the real world.

Midwest Brain Injury Clubhouse is a great organization that is a cornerstone in Chicago's mental health community. Located on the near Westside 'The Clubhouse as it is affectionately known works with a diverse population of group members. The Clubhouse affords it's members many great opportunities to enjoy all Chicago has to offer. My personal volunteer experience has been a great learning involvement and a lot of fun. It provided an opportunity to assist many of the clubhouse members in their transitioning back into the community, as well as, working on their living and social skills. The Clubhouse does a great job taking members to many museums, plays, and fun places around the city. I fully recommend the Midwest Brain Injury Clubhouse where learning is an adventure and transitioning is fun. Christopher H.

The Clubhouse is a great place to experience individuals working to their maximum effort despite multiple physical challenges. I have not spent a day where I was not moved deeply by the efforts of one or more of the members. It really gives me joy when one of them takes on a task and, regardless of the length of time it takes to complete it, the person is elated at finishing. Some of us "normals" can take a page or two from the members of Midwest Brain Injury Clubhouse.

The Clubhouse is a great place for people from all walks of life to go and have a great day. The staff is very friendly and capable and in my meetings with the clubhouse members, they always seem very happy and excited to return each and every day. The outings put on by the staff are both informative and educational, all while being entertaining and fun for both the employees and members. I would recommend the clubhouse to anyone in need.

This organization is a great place to help those in the community and do something fun! While I was here I helped adults type articles on the computer, cook in the kitchen, and play volleyball in the afternoon! Volunteering here is a lot of fun, and I would definitely recommend the Clubhouse if you are looking to make a difference in the community!

This is a wonderful organization that provides peer support as well as purposeful activities to individuals with brain injury. The members not only re-learn skills but help others to become self-sufficient to the greatest extent possible. Great accomplishments have come from this terrific organization.
