A day program gathering at the Community Clubhouse.
Located in the former Western Auto Building on Main Street, the Community Clubhouse serves as the hub of Project Horseshoe Farm adult programs and its outreach activities.
The Clubhouse provides a safe and welcoming place with programs and activities for elderly, isolated, or mentally disabled members of our community or for anyone who just wants to come and have a good time. Clubhouse members, including women living in the Horseshoe Farm enhanced independent living housing program enjoy day programs, lunches, games, volunteer work opportunities, and sometimes just stopping by to visit. Project Horseshoe Farm also provides outreach support to isolated or vulnerable community members who could benefit from home visits, transportation, a delivered home cooked meal, or other support as needed.
The Clubhouse programs are intended to help overcome the significant isolation and lack of purpose and meaning that often faces seniors, people living with mental illness, people living with disabilities, and many others in our community. They also are intended to help support successful community living, avoid unnecessary hospital stays, and provide a place where community members can come together to support one another in helping these members of our community.

The Clubhouse is also the central gathering place for Horseshoe Farm staff, volunteers, and students. It serves as the administrative office for Horseshoe Farm Fellows, a gateway for community volunteers, and a site for various other community gatherings and events.
