What is The Lodge?

The Lodge provides housing, a supportive community and vocational opportunities for adults with mental health challenges.  According to  individual preferences, the members live independently in scattered rental properties in the neighborhood. 


The Lodge offers flexible jobs at the Café the Lodge and daily educational and recreational programs.  The program is largely consumer-run. The Lodge supports its members to establish a wholesome lifestyle and affirms their self-determination and inherent ability to create productive and meaningful lives.


Café the Lodge serves gourmet coffee, wholesome breakfasts and lunches, offers a flexible catering service, and provides a myriad of cultural and educational activities.

Aaik Van Munster was the embodiment of wellness and recovery. For all of us that knew him, he has touched our lives in a special way. We hope that we can all pull together in his memory and keep this dream alive, "Seeing Greatness in Self and Others".
