David’s Harp provides a nurturing, non-institutional setting. As such, the adults we serve are our members, not clients or patients. All of David’s Harp’s members are at least 18 years of age and have been diagnosed with some variant of schizophrenia, major depression, or bipolar disorder. All members are low-income individuals with some classified as no-income. Many members are homebound, isolative, and struggle with complicated medical issues and accompanying physical and mobility limitations. David’s Harp’s members all reside in the greater Portland area.
“When I work in the garden, I feel like people appreciate what I am doing. It’s enjoyable to talk to people while they work in the garden and comforting to see people work so hard.”
“The challenge of coming here and going home keeps me sane. It’s my home away from home.”
