ADVISORY COUNCIL & STAFF
The Gateway Clubhouse Advisory Council is designed to provide support and guidance to the Gateway Clubhouse. The Council is separate from the Community Workforce Solutions, Inc. Board of Directors, who
is ultimately responsible for the governance of the agency. The primary functions of the Council are to provide support to the Clubhouse in Leadership, Accountability, Development, Advocacy, and Vision.
The Clubhouse is staffed by two dynamic and qualified staff, both of whom are Certified Brain Injury Specialists (CBIS). In addition, support is provided to the Clubhouse by the Community Re-entry Manager
of Community Workforce Solutions who is also a CBIS as well as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and a Certified Vocational Evaluator.

CLUBHOUSE PURPOSE AND STANDARDS
Gateway Clubhouse chose to follow a set of standards developed by the International Brain Injury Clubhouse Alliance (IBICA). These standards are modeled off of the International Center for Clubhouse Development
(ICCD) standards that have been successfully utilized by mental health clubhouses for over 50 years. These standards have been modified with the consent of ICCD to reflect the differences that exist between
the disabilities of mental illness and brain injury. These standards serve as a “Bill of Rights” for members and a code of ethics for staff and organizations running Clubhouses. The standards insist that
a Clubhouse is a place that offers respect and opportunity to its members.
The Gateway Clubhouse is a member of the International Brain Injury Clubhouse Alliance and follows the standards in an effort to provide consistency in services.
