The Castle and the Friends of the Castle is a non-profit 501(c)(3) network of volunteers impassioned to help adults experiencing mental disorders live life as capably and as fully as possible. We have been certified by the State of Ohio Department of Mental Health and are a life skills and learning drop-in recreation center for adults coping with mental disorders. Our objective is to treat each person with the respect they deserve and help equip them with the life-skill tools they need to enjoy living as independently as possible. It has been our desire to create a healthy and comfortable environment where each person can learn and grow at his or her own pace surrounded by friends and family. Our center features scheduled activities, each specifically designed to allow exploration of different and exciting programs while honing everyday life skills. We encourage leering and growth in a haven of comfort, safety and fun! Involvement is the key to building strong relationships with the community as well as a strong support network for realizing our mission to those we reach out to. We encourage volunteerism and are always excited to welcome new faces to our growing family of volunteers. Are you unable to offer some of your time but still want to help us make a difference? We gladly accept donations to help fortify our program offering and to include new activities as well. Come and join our gathering place where friendships are formed. We look forward to seeing you soon!
