Vail Communities

Vail Communities, is a MN nonprofit dedicated to supporting individuals living with mental health challenges.

We offer an array of programs that wrap around someone who is on the recovery journey. We prioritize prevention. That includes finding someone a home, focusing on their whole health, connecting them to employment opportunities, and walking alongside them as they navigate the mental health system. We focus on the strengths each individual brings and not the problems that have stood in their way. Our relational approach supports individuals in a continuous way, not just when crisis occurs.

Mental illness strikes more families than cancer, lung disease, and heart disease. Our systems are not prepared to respond to the comprehensive needs someone has when mental illness emerges. Vail’s cornerstone program, the Clubhouse, has no waiting lists, is at low or no cost to the recipient, has no invasive assessments, and offers a warm handoff to deeper end services when they are needed.

Additional Culture Details

In 1981, Vail Place opened our first Clubhouse in a storefront in Hopkins, based on the Clubhouse Model - a unique, person-centered, recovery-based approach that was just starting to gain national attention.

Today, Vail Communities has several divisions & types of services, but the Clubhouse philosophy embedded in our roots still shows up in how we do our work across the organization. This is demonstrated by a firm belief that mental health recovery is possible; respectful interactions that honor the unique experiences of each person; authentic working relationships built through collaboration; transparent, proactive communication; and accessible leaders that welcome input and ideas.

We are a collaborative team of professionals who believe in the inherent worth of every human being. We believe mental illness should not interrupt someone’s wellness. We are hardworking, dedicated, inclusive, nimble, and curious. We will be successful because we live our values in a way that is meaningful and comprehensive.
