The Clubhouse for Special Needs
The HEB communities are talking about The Clubhouse for Special Needs and they are calling it “the most inviting, exciting and coolest place ever” for Special Needs teens and young adults! The Clubhouse is “out of the box!” People take just one foot into the new building and say, “wow!” What is this “wow” factor? The Clubhouse is not a drab, institutional-looking place nor are the programs! There is a western theme that runs throughout the building with a hallway that has a mural that stretchings all the way down and gives the feeling of walking down main street in a western town. The “lunch room” is not a lunch room but a “café” with pine wood panels half-way up the wall and western décor hangings on the walls. Round tables and leather chairs give a sense of a western café. Even the ADA bathrooms have the pine wood boards and rod iron décor.
There is still work to be completed such as the computers/electronics room called “The Play Station.” It will have a western railroad flare to it. Then there is the “lounge.” You would have to see it to get a sense of “home sweet home.” Last but not least the “workout corral.” It has air hockey, pool, fooze ball and just an overall feel of exercise and fun.
“The bar has been raised!”
Sept 18th is the date to remember. THE NORTH TEXAS GIVING DAY. On this day people can go on-line [northtexasgivingday.org] and make a donation[s] to their favorite 501c3 non-profit organization(s). Hopefully The Clubhouse for Special Needs is everyone’s favorite. SHARE, SAVE, AND GIVE. .
Last year 79 people gave on this day and donated $10,000 toward The Clubhouse for Special Needs. This helped us with the down payment for the purchase of our awesome new 7,151 s.f. building.
Also, on Sept 18th we will have an OPEN HOUSE and a DONATING PLACE: tours of our facility, computers to go online and make your donation and even time to interact with our teens and young adults in a game of Uno, pool or air hockey, etc. And don’t forget – there will be munchies. . www.theclubhouse.org 817-285-0885
