The Infinity House, a program sponsored and supported by Hamilton Center Inc., will be seeking Clubhouse International accreditation beginning this month.
The program in Terre Haute is a membership-driven organization designed to help adults with mental illnesses live productive lives, including community involvement and employment.
Infinity House is peer-driven; it is managed, facilitated and organized by members for members. It promotes socialization, engagement and skills building.
The program is based on a “work-ordered day,” which begins with a 9 a.m. meeting designed to share information about responsibilities and goals of Infinity House for that day.
Members volunteer for daily responsibilities such as clerical, food service, maintenance, bookkeeping, tours, housekeeping, gardening, yard work and planning special activities and projects.
The only qualifications for being a member is being 18 years or older and having a history of mental health issues. There are no fees and a membership never expires.
Achieving accreditation will demonstrate the organization’s ability to meet national standards set forth by Clubhouse International.
Hamilton Center Inc. is a regional behavioral health system in central and west-central Indiana with corporate offices in Terre Haute.
Infinity House hours of operation are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with lunch served at noon every day.
