With more than 1 in 5 Americans struggling with mental illness, Shore House is a community based, non-residential psychosocial rehabilitation and recovery program that empowers and restores hope, independence and self-worth for people living with a mental illness. Having met the stringent criteria set by our governing body, Clubhouse International, Shore House, based in Long Branch, is the first and only accredited Clubhouse in New Jersey. The Clubhouse model is listed in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices as an effective modality of support. This model has been implemented in 34 countries around the world, with 330 Clubhouses serving over 100,000 members. We currently have 145 members at Shore House, growing steadily. Membership is free, voluntary and without time limits.
