Chatham Clubhouse

Everyone Is Welcome

Family members and Caregivers of Brain Injury Survivors in Chatham-Kent came together back in the 1990’s to offer modest programming. From those humble beginnings in a Church basement, the Organization has grown significantly over the years.

New Beginnings’ Chatham-Kent facility is now located in a 9,000 square foot building — located at 9 Maple Leaf Drive in Chatham — that is equipped with numerous amenities including an exercise area, craft and games areas, television/seating area, a large wood shop, and quiet rooms. The exterior of the building offers seating alongside the beautiful floral gardens and pond, and there are even raised garden beds that provide produce in the summer months.

The Club supports hundreds of members and their families and caregivers, and has numerous volunteers. The Club’s activities are funded, in part, through the Ministry of Health. In addition, we host numerous fundraising events throughout the year.
The Club is open from 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., with scheduled programming running from 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. each day. The Chatham Club typically sees anywhere from 25-35 members each day. Membership is free and new members are always welcome!
