The Clubhouse Model in Florida is growing in scope and attracting interest from across the state. We were excited to host a visit by Kim Roberts, Nancy Russo and Sonya-Lee Zezza of SMA Healthcare. They made the trek from Putnam County and spent a couple of hours with us, meeting our members, seeing our workday in action and learning about the Clubhouse Model.
Our discussions centered on implementation of the 37 International Clubhouse Standards and the steps needed to achieve accreditation. The SMA team was specifically interested in skill development and employment opportunities for members. Picture above, left to right, are Kim Roberts, Sonya-Lee Zezza and Nancy Russo.
We plan to return the visit to SMA at the future grand opening of their program!
