FRIENDSHIP HOUSES

JASA's Friendship Houses offer supportive environments that welcome individuals 55 and older who are living with a mental health condition. 

The Friendship Houses are psychosocial clubs, which utilize an adapted Clubhouse model, where staff and members work side by side to carry out the tasks of running the program. The social and community engagement offered reduces isolation, builds living skills, and promotes self-esteem. Activities include wellness and health promotion, peer support and socialization, and volunteer opportunities. Programming is delivered in person at our sites as well as virtually.  Limited transportation assistance is available.

Friendship Houses are co-located with JASA Older Adult Centers so members also can benefit from nutritious lunches, joint programming, and connections to the larger JASA network of services.
