Passageway members are a community of individuals, focused on one goal: recovery from the symptoms of mental illness.
Passageway gives the opportunity to build a system of natural supports. This is achieved through working side-by-side in the work-ordered day, and through social activities outside of the work-ordered day.
Each member has the shared responsibility of running the clubhouse. Members have an ownership of the program and its space. They serve in committees and on our board of directors.
Becoming a member doesn't happen overnight. Taking a look at our membership process can help speed things along.
Passageway tours are led by members. Expect to tour the clubhouse to learn about our service units, transitional employment program, and our social activities. Those interested in membership should plan to meet with a member of our intake team to go over any paperwork and answer any questions about the clubhouse. Tours are scheduled from 10 am-2 pm, Monday through Thursday. Please fill out the contact form below, call 515-243-6929 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a tour.
The membership team at Passageway gathers required information on your behalf. Want a head start? Fill out the required paperwork necessary for membership before your tour! Here's what you'll need:
Once the membership team has gathered all required paperwork and information, membership is determined through a review process. Once the review process is complete, a determination of membership is provided.
Once your membership is accepted, we coordinate with you and your referral organization to set up a goal meeting. Each new Passageway member meets with a staff member to develop an individual goal for your membership. Whether it's building natural supports in the Passageway community or brushing up on your employment skills, Passageway will help you develop your path toward recovery.
After your initial goal meeting, you get to pick your first day. We'll make sure you're not alone with the help of our Passageway Ambassadors. Our Ambassadors have a broad range of interests, and they are excited to share their clubhouse with you! Learn the ins-and-outs of the work-ordered day, and get the inside scoop on clubhouse news!
