At the Clubhouse, survivors of brain injury are considered members, not clients or patients and, as such, claim responsibility for making program decisions and directing the daily operations of the Clubhouse.

The Clubhouse day is structured around meaningful work in a work unit. Members choose to complete tasks that directly support the operations of the Clubhouse- from hiring staff, to advocating for brain injury services, to writing a newsletter article or preparing lunch.
