Narrative

Star Light Center is a membership organization open to adults of Hampshire County who have serious mental illness. Modeled after Fountain House in NYC, members and staff work side by side running the club to provide service and I&R. Building has braille indicator signs. The club offers work opportunities in the community as well as inside the clubhouse.

Star Light Center believes every individual has the right to work and to lead full and productive lives as contributing members of our communities. Our Clubhouse Model program offers services to adults with mental illness to prepare for, find, and retain employment.
