Our current space, at 103 West Main, in Carrboro, is an old single family mill house that has:

  • A crumbling foundation
  • A leaking roof
  • Inadequate heating and air-conditioning
  • Limited accessible space
  • Overcrowded areas for study and job preparation
  • A kitchen that can’t fit our culinary work
  • Large, ongoing maintenance issues
  • Many, many more problems

Our programs simply cannot Fully function.

We are a community, but we have no place to meet as a whole community.

Why here? Why now?

As a UNC Hospital Emergency Department representative states: “Club Nova is a great program which helps many of our patients lead positive productive lives. As you mentioned, our volume of behavioral health patients has skyrocketed over the last two years with no sign of a plateau.”

For people discharged from the hospital, there is no place else to go where they are guaranteed: 

  • A right to a place to come
  • A right to meaningful relationships
  • A right to meaningful work
  • A right to a place to return

Our plan


The Club Nova Building Campaign is designed to meet the current and expanding needs of our community by raising money to construct a new building on our Main Street site.
