Who we are

Mission and History
Magnolia Clubhouse is a vital community of growth, hope and opportunity. Our mission is to ensure that people who live with mental illness are respected co-workers, neighbors and friends.

Formerly known as Hill House, the Clubhouse has been promoting vocational, educational, social and personal achievement as a center of psychosocial rehabilitation in Cleveland since 1961. It was one of the first centers of this kind in the country.

Magnolia Clubhouse is recognized at the local, state and national levels as an exemplary center of recovery and community reintegration for those who live with mental illness. A member of the International Network of Clubhouses, we are part of a movement for social justice founded in 1948 by Fountain House in New York City.

We are certified at the highest levels by the Council of Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and by the International Center for Clubhouse Development (ICCD).

The International Clubhouse Model is an evidence-based best practice in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Registry http://www.nrepp.samhsa.gov/ViewIntervention.aspx?id=189 .
