Membership in the program is lifetime and members can utilize additional services and supports available through the program.
Archive of some of the Clubhouse Newsletters:
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.
