How You Can Help


Finding Purpose In Your Life

 Prime Time House gave me a purpose in life.  It gave me a reason for functioning, a reason for getting up every day.  Before Prime Time House, I would stay at home, sleep, and do nothing, but now I have a purpose. I have a reason to get out of bed every day.  I have friends.  I have people who I need.

Empowerment Through Giving

 This is not where you come and get service. This is where I come and give service. So that empowers me. I can be a service giver. The staff and members work side by side. Members make decisions for the clubhouse. It’s so empowering to be considered not a patient, not somebody with a label, but a member.
