WHAT WE DO
Elevate Lives. Elevate Rome.
Elevation House is in the business of changing and shaping lives. We are a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) Organization who offers people living with mental illness opportunities for community, friendships, life-skills, job skills as well as employment, housing and education connections. We also help with access to medical and psychiatric services in a caring and safe environment. This social and economic inclusion reverses the alarming trends of higher suicide, hospitalization and incarceration rates associated with mental illness.
People living with mental illness often require a variety of social and medical services. Elevation House helps our members access community services - psychiatric care, general medical services, government disability benefits and other services.
A WORK ORDERED DAY
At Elevation House, the daily activity is organized around a structured system known as the work-ordered day. Members take ownership of the clubhouse by taking on key operating tasks such as preparing food, producing our newsletters and cleaning our work-areas. Everyone has a purpose, each member contributes to our success.
As a right of membership, Elevation House provides our members with opportunities return to paid employment. This happens in integrated work settings through both Transitional Employment and Independent Employment programs.
Sometimes mental illness interrupts educational plans. Elevation House, with staff assistance, offers educational opportunities for members consistent with their goals and abilities. For some, this might mean completing high school via a GED program. For others, it could involve technical school or college.
Elevation House is a community of members (adults living with mental illness) centered in a "bricks & mortar" environment. Our Clubhouse provides members with a meaningful day that offers dignity, personal relationships and the opportunity to reach their potential. Our members and the community of Rome both receive significant benefits.
