What Is Alliance House?

Adults with severe and persistent mental illness in Salt Lake City deserve every opportunity to build self-confidence and self-esteem, reintegrate into their community, become independent and productive, and live happy, healthy lives. That’s why Alliance House exists to provide a supportive environment where adults with serious, persistent mental illness (SPMI) can rebuild their self-respect, dignity, and abilities through education, productive work, and meaningful relationships. We do this by helping Members complete educational goals, develop necessary work skills in order to return to productive employment in the community, and where needed, help Members find and secure affordable housing.

The Three Pillars of Alliance House


Alliance House Education

An individual with mental illness can have difficulties completing his or her education within mainstream education systems, which is why Alliance House helps its members complete various levels of education, from a high school diploma to a college degree.

“A Clubhouse is a Membership organization, and therefore the people who come and participate are its Members….This idea of Membership is fundamental to the clubhouse concept, as having Membership in an organization means that an individual has both shared ownership and shared responsibility for the success of that organization. To have Membership in an organization means to belong, to fit in somewhere, and to have a place where you are always welcome. For a person living with the effects of mental illness, these simple things cannot be taken for granted.”
    — Joel Corcoran, Executive Director, Clubhouse International


Just finished watching “Alliance House Is Here” video and was so moved and cried throughout it because I when I thought I was at the end of my rope and hopeless I was referred to Alliance House. The video captured the hope that comes alive and the value of each and every member. The video brought back so many memories for me as a member for about nine years. Thank you!

Good place when you feel out of place in the real world & suffering from your illness. Pace yourself and enjoy being part of the work order day. It brings you to your level of work, you are able to handle. TRY IT OUT SOME TIME, IT IS NICE TO SEE NEW FACES ! ! !
