Breakthrough House has five prevocational work units to assist members in developing job skills, and to support them in improving their interaction skills. Participating in these units is a big part of the process of moving toward mental health. The five work units are maintenance, clerical, thrift shop, kitchen, and automotive.
The clubhouse has two meetings each day (9:30 AM and 1:00 PM) in which the tasks for the work units are discussed. Members can sign-up for unit tasks in each of these meetings. Meetings last anywhere from fifteen to thirty minutes. Members lead the meetings.
