HOPE House is a place where people recovering from mental illness find the support and resources they need to to pursue their goals and dreams. The clubhouse program focuses on the abilities and talents of members. Together, members and staff operate the club, which is open 5 days a week, 9-5 and evenings and weekends for special events. HOPE House is located in downtown Port Chester, NY and draws members from the entire region. It is modeled after Fountain House in New York City, which pioneered the concept and philosophy of this unique approach and has been replicated around the world. HOPE House is also a member of the International Center for Clubhouse Development (ICCD), an organization dedicated to expanding the Clubhouse movement worldwide.
