Frontier House

 

Considered a model program in Colorado, Frontier House graphically illustrates NRBH's commitment and belief that individuals with mental illness can and will actively engage in a recovery process given the opportunity to do so. Clubhouses, like Frontier House, help individuals get back to work, regain their self worth, find safe and affordable housing, improve their education level, and experience mutually respectful relationships.
