People need purpose in their lives. One thing that gives purpose and meaning to life is work. Almost all Threshold members work either in the Clubhouse to gain valuable experience and confidence, or in paid placements at companies throughout Durham and the Triangle. Through employment members gain self-esteem, their talents are recognized, they have the chance to develop new relationships and earn their own money.
Threshold offers various strategies to help support members who wish to access paid work opportunities in the community including closely monitored Transitional Employment and Supported Employment, and also provides support for members who are independently employed.
