In a ceremony at the Michigan State Senate Building in Lansing, CNS Healthcare’s clubhouses, Our House and Visions, were recognized for their outstanding work in the community. Clubhouse Michigan recognized clubhouses and community employers from around the state of Michigan for their work employing clubhouse members in Transitional Employment (TE) positions.
Transitional Employment is a time-limited job opportunity, usually 6-9 months, where clubhouse members gain work experience while being supported by clubhouse staff. After completing a TE position, members can move on to an independent employment opportunity.
Our House Clubhouse, in Southfield, was honored, along with their community employer Sweet Magnolia Southern Cooking. State Representative Kyra Bolden was unable to attend but sent her congratulations.
Visions Clubhouse, in Pontiac, was honored, along with their community employer 7-Eleven. State Senator Ruth Johnson spoke, thanking 7-Eleven and Visions for their partnership and work to employ people with mental health diagnoses.
Congratulations to both Clubhouses for their fine work!
