ACCESS Hope House Clubhouse—in Dearborn, Mich.— is unlike any other center in the community. Hope House is, first and foremost, a community of people. It is a groundbreaking program of the ACCESS Community Health and Research Center (CHRC) that gives adults with a history of serious mental illness the opportunity to form meaningful relationships and extend these relationships into society. Hope House guarantees its members the right to a safe and supportive environment and the right to participate in a community. In this environment, members develop improved self-esteem, healthy habits and better socialization and personal skills.
