NorthStar's community focuses on clubhouse operations during the Work Ordered Day, but we know developing strong social networks is also vital to mental health recovery. Weekly social time is every Thursday from 5pm to 7pm and Friday from 3pm to 5pm as well as monthly hikes on the last Saturday of each month.
Social programming at NorthStar is completely member driven. Members facilitate games, bingo, and classes in arts and crafts, foreign languages, music, and more. We host karaoke at the clubhouse every few months, and field trips include hikes, and participation in NAMI Multnomah's annual awareness walks. On the last Friday of every month, we have a birthday party for everyone born that month. Additionally, the clubhouse is open on major holidays like Thanksgiving and Fourth of July so members can celebrate together.
Many members develop enduring friendships at NorthStar. Together we thrive!
