Seeking Advisory Committee Members from local Professional and Business Organizations. Dreams Unlimited Clubhouse (DUC), an Easterseals program, is a psychosocial rehabilitation program that helps individuals with mental illness develop the skills necessary to be successful in their everyday lives and within their community. Advisory Committee participants support the DUC membership in the following ways:
- Advocacy and Marketing: Assist in educating potential employers, legislators, funding sources, health care providers, educators, family members, and the general public by dispelling myths and stereotypes surrounding mental illness
- Employment Development: Increase the number of employers within the community-at-large who are willing to hire Clubhouse members into part-time transitional, supported, or independently paid employment
- Fundraising: Increase marketing efforts to raise awareness of the ongoing critical need to support Clubhouse members
- Member Health and Wellness: Identify additional community resources and/or opportunities for members to promote their overall health and wellness
