Being together, working towards a common goal, and counting on one another put our Members on the field of dreams. Members and staff traveled to Daytona this weekend to compete in the Special Olympics. Our Clubhouse model demonstrates the importance of the linkages with education, employment and social protection sectors, ensuring that people with mental health conditions are included in the community and are able to lead full and meaningful lives.
What do your dreams look like? For GOC Members, it’s feeling like you belong. GOC Member John has participated in the Special Olympics for years. He suggested that GOC form a team, and we did it. This is one of the many ways the GOC gives our Members a voice. GOC Member Bella is getting an award for our participation,. The GOC placed second in the competition.
