Waipahu Aloha Clubhouse:
State of Hawaii - Department of Health - Adult Mental Health Division
There is a total of nine Clubhouses in the state of Hawaii and the Waipahu Aloha Clubhouse is one of the five Clubhouses located on the island of Oahu.
The Waipahu Aloha Clubhouse was established on December 1, 1997 and offers a unique member-driven psychosocial rehabilitation program for adults living with mental illness. All participation in the Clubhouse is on a voluntary basis and anyone who is 18 years or older and has an Axis I Diagnosis can become a member.
Over the years, we have served more than 800 consumers seeking mental wellness. The members of the Clubhouse are offered a safe and supportive environment and many opportunities to achieve or regain the confidence and skills needed for successful community integration. There are for example work 5 units in our Clubhouse where both staff and members work side by side with tasks which mimics actual workplaces: The Kitchen Unit, The Facilities Unit, The Clerical Unit, The Membership and Media unit, and the Career Development Unit.
The Clubhouse, moreover, strictly follows the International Standards, consensual agreed upon by the worldwide Clubhouse community. The principles expressed in these Standards are at the heart of the Clubhouse community's success:
• The standards helps people with mental illness stay out of hospitals while achieving social, financial, educational, and vocational goals;
• Serve as a “bill of rights” for members and a code of ethics for Clubhouse staff, boards and administrators, and a reminder that Clubhouses must be places that offer respect and 
   opportunities to members;
• Provide the basis for assessing Clubhouse quality through the Clubhouse International Accreditation™ process.
One of the standards for example, addresses the importance of no staff or member only space, all spaces at the Clubhouse are accessible to everyone so that we all feel equal.
The Waipahu Aloha Clubhouse is open Monday to Friday from 7:45-3:456pm. The Clubhouse is also open during:
• TUESDAY PAU HANA. Held every Tuesday from 4:00pm-6:00pm at the Clubhouse or in the community.
• SATURDAY PAU HANA. Enjoying an activity outside in the community one Saturday of the month. 
• HOLIDAY PAU HANA. The activity is held on the actual holiday from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the Waipahu Aloha Clubhouse.
The hours offers at the Clubhouse helps the members to stay busy, involved, and less isolated.

The purpose of the Waipahu Aloha clubhouse advisory board is to support, encourage, and offer suggestions to the Clubhouse colleagues, in the effort to:
• Promote the Waipahu Aloha Clubhouse throughout the community
• Identify opportunities for the Club to contribute to the local community 
• Work with the Club to address and reduce the stigma on Mental illness
• Assist in fundraising and special events
• Assist in developing employment opportunities for members
• Support the day to day functioning of the Clubhouse
• Promote confidence and self-respect among the membership
The mission of the Waipahu Aloha Clubhouse's Advocacy Group is to provide a voice for members to fight for rights and services entitled to them and to endorse and provide testimony for bills pending that address pertinent issues members believe in. Also, major focus is placed in educating members of useful resources and services available to regardless of circumstance and educating the public on mental health issues while dispelling myths about mental illness. Lastly members are encouraged to take active roles in government and democratic processes by defining and tracking house and senate bills, endorsing voter registration, and encouraging all to vote and stay politically informed.
Employment is a fundamental element of our Clubhouse philosophy--it is a source of accomplishment, self-confidence, and empowerment for our members. The Clubhouse assists members to reach their vocational and educational goals by helping them take advantage of adult education opportunities in the community.

Help to end polio now
Since Rotary and its partners launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative 30 years ago, the incidence of polio has plummeted by more than 99.9 percent, from about 350,000 cases a year to just 22 cases in 2017. To sustain this progress, and protect all children from polio, Rotary has committed to raising US$50 million per year in support of global polio eradication efforts. Without full funding and political commitment, this paralyzing disease could return to previously polio-free countries, putting children everywhere at risk.  
Your donation helps Rotary and its partners reach every child with the polio vaccine. Thanks to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, your contribution will be tripled, getting us even closer to a polio-free world.

Makati West 50th anniversary tentative dates
I know you've attended our sister club anniversaries in the past or showed some interest, so here's some information about the Makati West 50th anniversary. I received  tentative dates for their 50th anniversary from Past President Jay Tambunting. Their welcome dinner will be on November 22 and the 50th Anniversary Ball will be on November 23. 
Five years ago they held their 45th anniversary in August, but the reason it was held in August was to accommodate then RI President Gary Huang's schedule. 
Hope you can all join me in Makati in November 2019!
Thank you,
Mike Kato
