Located in the former Western Auto Building on Main Street, the Community Clubhouse serves as the hub of Project Horseshoe Farm and many of its activities.
During the day, the Clubhouse provides a safe and welcoming place with programs and activities for elderly and mentally disabled members of our community. Clubhouse members, including ladies in the Horseshoe Farm supported housing program enjoy day programs, lunches, games, volunteer opportunities, and sometimes just stopping by to visit. Project Horseshoe Farm also provides outreach support to some of our Community Clubhouse members by providing transportation, home visits, and other support as needed. The Clubhouse programs are intended to help overcome the significant isolation and lack of purpose and meaning that often faces elderly and mentally disabled members of our community, to help support successful community living and avoid unnecessary hospital stays, and to provide a place where community members can come together to support one another in helping these members of our community.
In the afternoons, the Clubhouse shifts it focus to programs for children. Drawing inspiration from the 826 Valencia Project, the Clubhouse offers reading and enrichment programs to more than 50 children enrolled in Horseshoe Farm after school programs in order to provide mentorship, build character and confidence, and improve academic achievement.

Finally, the Clubhouse is the central gathering place for Horseshoe Farm staff, volunteers, and students. It serves as the administrative office for Project Horseshoe Farm, a gateway for community volunteers, and a site for seminars and discussions, weekly movies, and various other Horseshoe Farm gatherings and events.
