Our Friendship Club meets on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM led by our group supervisor, Gloria Moore. Participants come to the club via the Montgomery Transit Authority (MTA) special bus or family members and friends. We provide a hot lunch each day and many fun and informative opportunities that would not be available to the participants without MHA Montgomery. Our staff uses your generous donations to purchase and prepare these lunches and activities for approximately 12 participants.
Examples of Friendship Club activities include:
Our staff and members of the Friendship Club also get to attend the annual two-day Alabama Recovery Institute sponsored by the Alabama Department of Mental Health and held at Shocco Springs, AL every April. This program is educational yet filled with lots of fun, great food, “yard” sales (all free), a talent show, door prizes, a watermelon cutting party, and a big dance on the last evening when they get to dress up and really enjoy. There is also a candlelight vigil before the dance, honoring those who have passed on ever since the last conference.
Otherwise, there are far too many success stories, events, and “happenings” to list them all here. Suffice it to say that the participants have a place to come where they are safe and enjoy fun and meaningful activities and learn recovery skills.
Our Open Door Club meets on Tuesday evenings of each week led by our group supervisor, Candice Franklin. Members consist of those who still need some supervision but are able to live in housing provided by the Montgomery Area Mental Health Authority. Every week, we at MHA provide food, snacks, supplies, and many fun activities for the members of the Open Door Club, Our staff uses your generous donations to purchase and prepare these supplies and activities.
Examples of members’ activities include:
Although our activities are designed to be fun and enjoyable, they are carefully planned to enhance the educational, wellness, and psychosocial development aspects of our programs and services.
