AIM Center, Inc. is a non-profit, United Way agency located conveniently in beautifully scenic, Chattanooga, Tennessee, providing psychosocial rehabilitation to adults diagnosed with mental illness. Our Mission is to enhance recovery in the living, working, learning, and social environments. AIM Center was founded in 1989 by a small group of Chattanooga families who believed their sons and daughters could recover from mental illness. The AIM Center is certified by Clubhouse International, aka, International Center for Clubhouse Development.
AIM Center’s approach to rehabilitation is based on the Clubhouse Model of Psychosocial Rehabilitation. This Model invites program participants to become Members of our Clubhouse, with a shared sense of ownership and responsibility for our success. Members work together with our staff in the daily operations of the Clubhouse. They have a voice in all things— from activity planning to policy decisions. Along with a sense of ownership and belonging, participants grow their talents and build relationships. Clubhouse participants choose the area of the clubhouse they’d like to work in and set their own goals for education, employment, health, housing, family life and community integration. To help reach these goals, services like job placement, continuing education and wellness classes are offered outside clubhouse involvement.
