Capitol Clubhouse helped Rosa continue her education with United Way support
(As told by Capitol Clubhouse staff)
Rosa T. began attending Kennebec Behavioral Health's Capitol Clubhouse to find a sense of community, as well as reduce her social anxiety and depression. The program, a local center that offers people who have mental illness opportunities to achieve their full potential, enabled Rosa to blossom quickly. During the course of members' participation in the Clubhouse, they gain access to opportunities to rejoin the worlds of employment and education.
Rosa began to visit the Clubhouse daily and built up enough self-confidence to work toward her accounting degree, receiving A’s in all of her classes. When Rosa ran into financial difficulties and was unable to register her car, she believed that she would have to stop her studies and limit her attendance at the Clubhouse. Instead, the Clubhouse supported Rosa in her time of need with help from United Way. Using a small portion of funding that United Way provides to the Clubhouse, Rosa was able to register her car and continue transporting herself to her courses. Rosa still takes classes locally and maintains an "A" average. She recently began working in a transitional employment placement at the Board of Licensure in Medicine.
