You're invited to join in the one year anniversary celebration for Clubhouse Atlanta, an inviting place for adults with Mental Illness that gives them Respect, Dignity and Courage to reach their potential as valued and contributing members of their community. Our own Freddy Morello is the Clubhouse's Executive Director and will be sharing its story with us at the end of October.
