About the ClubhouseMission
The Upward Bound 5th Street Express will help consumers develop their social life, develop leisure skills, help overcome loneliness, isolation and provide relief from stress in a cost effective setting. It will provide, in a very comfortable way, an atmosphere of acceptance with a sense of belonging.
Upward Bound 5th Street Express is a drop in center where adults meet other adults, most of whom struggle with stress, anxiety, depression or other mental health disorders. It is a safe, stigma free place where members are treated with respect. There is no cost for membership and most activities are free. Transportation is available for most activities.
Upward Bound is a 501(c)3 corporation, governed by a 8 member consumer board of directors. The board meets on the second Monday of each month and all members are welcome to attend.
