A Place of Belonging
BIAN’s Oasis clubhouse is a community centre for people living with brain injury. It’s a place where people get together to share their ideas, skills, and interests. The Clubhouse is an active, 'doer' environment where members have the opportunity to expand their horizons, establish new friendships, and achieve their potential.
Hours of Operation: Monday through Thursday between 10:00am and 4:00pm.
Please contact Meka Matthews, Clubhouse Coordinator to schedule a tour, get more information about the monthly calendar or to receive membership forms to sign up as a member!

"A PLACE FOR MEMBERS, RUN BY MEMBERS."
People who come to the Clubhouse are those who want a chance to move forward after having their lives disrupted by brain injury. At the Clubhouse people’s strengths and abilities are highlighted, rather than their limitations. The Clubhouse values are belonging, opportunity, contribution, and collaboration.
