Our Virtual Clubhouse

A virtual clubhouse is an online community that reflects the purpose, principles and practices of an accredited clubhouse, and is considered an extension of the physical clubhouse community. At Genesis Club, we reach out to, connect with and support people with serious mental illness who do not have access to our physical location at 274 Lincoln Street, for whatever reason. Virtual clubhouses offer opportunities to form genuine connections, engage in work of the clubhouse, and help members continue their recovery journey through on-line platforms for gathering, connecting and working.

You must be a member to access the virtual services and meetings described here. Information on how to connect is provided at orientation.

Virtual Clubhouse Supports

Employment Assistance

We connect with members through video conferencing and document sharing to help with finding jobs, submitting resumes, and networking with other job seekers.

Education Support

Through video and phone calls, Genesis Club helps members explore educational programs, navigate the admissions process, apply for financial aid, and enroll in courses remotely. Members receive support specifically designed to keep them enrolled and successful each semester.

Virtual Meetings

Our daily house-wide video calls and virtual unit meetings are attended by dozens of members each day and are designed to keep everyone up-to-date and engaged with what is happening at the Clubhouse.

Virtual Wellness Checks (Outreach)

We talk with members each day to see if they have everything they need to remain in good health, and to ensure they know they are not alone. Members choose how they want us to reach out to them and how often, with the option of receiving text messages, phone calls, and video calls.

Tech Assistance

We help members attain mobile devices and teach them the technical skills that enable them to access online learning, participate in video calls and meetings and connect with friends and loved ones.

Remote Work

Dozens of onsite work opportunities are now “hybrid” and done in partnership with one person at the clubhouse, and the other working remotely. Remote work offers members greater choice and flexibility in how they engage with the Clubhouse while also building skills needed for the post-COVID workforce.

Telehealth Support

We help members connect with their medical providers so there is no interruption in treatment or therapies.

Social Programs

Whether it’s learning a new recipe, sharing your favorite craft, or talking sports, Saturday socials are fun, casual ways for members to build friendships and stay connected.
