BridgeLine Place is a community-based vocational program utilizing the Clubhouse model. BridgeLine Place provides the opportunity to its members to learn valuable work and social skills to achieve vocational and/or independent living goals. In the workday, there are opportunities for members to gain self-confidence and purpose, and to develop a social network of peers. Membership in the program is lifetime and members can utilize additional services and supports available through the program.
BridgeLine Place operated formerly as High Street Clubhouse, a program of Virginia Neurocare Foundation from 2001 to 2014. In 2015, High Street Clubhouse became a program of The Bridge Line. A name change occurred in late 2015 to decrease public confusion on the location and better reflect the program’s purpose.
