Edwards's experience with HFBC (Hope Fort Bend Clubhouse)


“The Clubhouse is a place that saved me while I was sick. It’s a place to come and meet people and learn about life.”



​”The Clubhouse means a place where I am respected, a place where I make lifelong friends and it definitely gives me meaningful work to do.”


“The Clubhouse to me means a place where people can go to who have mental illness to get together and share their different experiences with each other. Before I started attending the Clubhouse, I used to think that I was the only one struggling with mental illness, but then I started meeting people who are going through similar experiences or worse than mine. I love coming here because, to me, it’s a place where I can talk with other people and make friends. There are many different activities to do here so you won’t be bored. Lastly, I can relate with many people here. I’m so happy that I finally found a place where people who have mental illness share their stories and learning from one another.”

“My name is Kevin, I visited the Clubhouse seeking volunteering experience and improvement of my social skills. Watching people interact here has exposed me to a diversity of amazing talent. Helping the Clubhouse by working on the computer improved my confidence in myself. My goal is to find work doing biomedical lab research developing cures for aging and I am really thankful for several of the staff who were generous enough to work with me to shift into the field.”


“It means so much to me. Everyone is supportive when you need help, when you need an ear and shoulder, when you need direction to resources, and they treat you like family.”
