"Work is essential...it is the glue that binds us to society."
- Bob Harvey
Work gives us purpose and connects us to those around us. But for people with mental illnesses, it is difficult to find and keep a good job. Because of this, employment is one of the fundamental building blocks of the Clubhouse, and Independence Center strives to give every person who wants it a chance to work at a real job.
