About the Queen City Clubhouse
A place for people with mental illness to be themselves & make their own choices.
"Empowered is the head that wears the crown"
QCC is a supportive community focused on helping people improve life balance and life satisfaction. Our members are people who are looking for support, friendship, hope, and opportunity. QCC empowers people to reach their goals and live their lives to the fullest.
The foundation of the Clubhouse is the work-ordered day. When members arrive, they choose their work unit and decide which Clubhouse needs they would like to fulfill. QCC has 3 work units: Membership Services; Hospitality; and Programming, Advocacy, and Development.
Our services will continue to grow as our membership grows. In the future we plan to offer employment programs, education assistance, and evening hours.

Work Ordered Day
Instead of traditional talk therapy members and staff work side-by-side to complete the needs of the Clubhouse. Working together and sharing responsibility builds relationships focused on strength and empowerment. Healing and growing comes from doing.
Support and Community
Support includes assistance with housing, education, employment, and advocacy among other things. Members form meaningful and engaging connections with each other. Support and belongingness are key elements of the model.
The Clubhouse model is designed to enable self-direction and choice while fostering a sense of purpose, wellness, and resiliency. Each day members decide what they would like to do and how they want to contribute. No decisions in the Clubhouse are made without Member input.

The Clubhouse Ohio Difference:
The employment rate for clubhouse members is 5x higher than the national average for persons living with mental illness.
One Year at the Clubhouse costs less than one week at the hospital.
“We’ve had members that have started groups, we have a member that started a food pantry, we have members who have reached out and gotten donations to lead us to be able to do raffles to raise money. So it’s really, what does a member want to do? What are their unique strengths and talents? And then how can we position them to be able to build those skills and to be able to reach those goals that they have,”

A SELF-SUSTAINING OPERATION:
“Participation is voluntary, but each member is always invited to participate in work which includes clerical duties, reception, food service, transportation management… and much more."
