Abstract

This poster includes results from International Survey of Clubhouses to provide information regarding Clubhouse performance and characteristics in a variety of areas. This poster provides a glimpse into the dissemination of ICCD Clubhouses with results from Clubhouse programs across the world. Clubhouse Directors complete surveys designed to obtain information concerning organizational characteristics, the ways in which Clubhouse programs provide opportunities for their members, as well as individual outcomes for members utilizing Clubhouse services and supports. Areas addressed in the survey include funding, governance and administration, staffing and staff credentials, program structure, Clubhouse memberships and membership demographics, participation in training and/or research activities, and a variety of services provided by ICCD Clubhouses including employment and housing. The poster will also include evidence of similarities and differences between ICCD certified and non-certified Clubhouses, Clubhouses located in and out of the United States, as well as common characteristics of Clubhouses internationally.
