The Happy Place Clubhouse

Kids and Adult Clubhouse is a voucher-based program that provides a safe space for kids and adults with special needs to hangout, be themselves and have fun while parents get a much needed break! Our Kids program welcomes children ages 2-21 and our Adult Program welcomes individuals 18 years and older. (Our Clubhouse is open on select days and by appointment only).

Eligibility is dependent on each individual’s needs and available staff/volunteers. *We may not be able to accommodate all requests, but we will work to meet the needs of as many children and adults as we can*
