The Mill House

The Mill House was Virginia’s first Clubhouse Model Program for survivors of brain injury and has served as the model for the other five Clubhouse open in Virginia today.  Since opening in 1999, The Mill House has served nearly  500 survivors of brain injury in the Metro Richmond area.   Our Clubhouse offers a full array of community based services specifically geared towards survivors of brain injury guided by a highly trained team of brain injury professionals.   These services are provided in a warm inviting atmosphere with a service philosophy that is focused on helping each member achieve their own individualized goals.
