Elevation House has found its permanent home at the Kelsey-Aycock-Burrell Center. Rome Mayor and KAB board chair Bill Collins, Elevation House board president Don Scuvotti, and Elevation House executive director Carrie Edge spoke at a press conference Tuesday welcoming the new nonprofit to the former Main High School building.
Elevation House uses the Clubhouse model to help adults with serious mental illnesses. Elevation House members will work at the clubhouse to build confidence. They will also receive individualized support to transition into school or full employment.
In December, Elevation House received a $10,000 Community Impact Grant from the Community Foundation. The grant allowed three people to complete a two week clubhouse training in February. Elevation House completed the comprehensive two-week Clubhouse International Training on February 4-15 at Gateway House in Greenville, South Carolina. Executive director Carrie Edge, board president Don Scuvotti, and member Tereasa Lowry attended the training.
The Community Foundation is excited to see the continuing impact of this new nonprofit. You can help us support organizations like Elevation House by donating to the Community Impact Fund on our donation page.
