How would someone go about becoming a member at your Clubhouse?
In order to become a member of the Clubhouse we have to receive a referral from Westmoreland Case management and Supports. Their number is 724-837-8290. If one does not have a case manager they will complete an intake at Westmoreland Casemanagement and Supports and then have a referral sent to the Clubhouse. Potential members can also contact the Clubhouse to seek assistance with the process.  

History:
West Place Clubhouse began as a Drop-in center in 1990. In 1998, the program adopted the Clubhouse Model and was named New Beginnings Clubhouse. The Clubhouse combined the Drop-in center and the Clubhouse program in 2002 and changed its name to West Place Clubhouse. The Clubhouse has maintained their ICCD Accreditation throughout the years and has maintained a strong socialization component.

West Place Clubhouse offers a variety of opportunities for members to accomplish goals and to continue through their journey of recovery. The Clubhouse has four (4) units in which members can learn new skills, increase their self-esteem and regain their self worth.

Participation in these units also allows members to be active in the community through advocacy, volunteering and expanding their skills and knowledge.

These activities provide members with the chance to socialize meet new people and do new things. As a whole the Clubhouse provides a place where members can develop a social support system, build their self-confidence, increase their self-esteem and enrich their lives.
