It is the mission of Fellowship House to assist adults with severe and persistent psychiatric disabilities and individuals that also have co-occurring substance abuse disorders, achieve the maximum level of community integration and self-reliance. This is accomplished by providing a comprehensive continuum of programs and services offering supportive opportunities for vocational and social rehabilitation as well as residential options, psychiatric and case management services. Fellowship House is committed to helping the persons served, who are called “members”, to better understand their illness, develop coping strategies, improve their quality of life and experience recovery. Fellowship House is widely recognized as a model for psychosocial rehabilitation. It has exceeded mandatory compliance and has been recognized for its strengths and exemplary conformance to standards by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
It is currently accredited in Behavioral Health for Psycho Social Rehabilitation programs in the areas of Case Management, Community-Based Rehabilitation, Community Housing, Outpatient Treatment and Community Employment services and Community Integration.

Club Fellowship is based on the International Center for Clubhouse Development (ICCD) International Standards for Clubhouse Programs. The clubhouse model is well- tested evidence- based recovery model that has been internationally proven to be highly effective.
Club Fellowship follows what is known as a work ordered day. This means that Club Fellowship is open at least five days a week from 9-5 for the members and staff.
All Clubhouse meetings are open to both members and staff and there are no formal member only meetings or formal staff only meetings where program decisions and member issues are discussed.
Members have the opportunity to participate in all the work of the Clubhouse via work units.
Case Management provides coordination of necessary services as indicated on the member’s individualized service plan. Linkage is provided to services such as health care, psychiatric services, and vocational/ educational training. Advocacy is a key function of the program, as case managers strive to ensure an improvement in the individual’s quality of life while promoting autonomy.
Florida Assertive Community Treatment (FACT) Team
FACT services are delivered by a group of multidisciplinary mental health professionals who work as a team and provide the majority of the treatment, rehabilitation, and support services clients need to achieve their goals. The approach is to emphasize relationship building and active involvement in assisting individuals with severe and persistent mental illness to make improvements in functioning, to better manage symptoms, to achieve individual goals, and maintain optimism.
FACT services are individually tailored with each client and address the preferences in community locations to enable each client to find and live in their own residence and find and maintain work in community jobs rather than expecting the client to come to the program.
Psycho- Social Rehabilitation provides members with supportive opportunities to enhance social, interpersonal, vocational, and basic living skills with the goal of achieving maximum community integration.
Community Housing offers continuum of residential settings ranging from supervised, transitional residential treatment to permanent supportive housing. Staff caters their support and service delivery to individual member needs and assists with skills associated with daily living, such as self- care skills and interpersonal communication. Fellowship House owns and operates apartment units in addition to managing units funded through the Homeless Trust.
