Tucked away on the east end of Port Clinton, Oak House is a little known jewel of a place. It is a non-judgmental, safe haven for adults recovering from mental illness. This is a place where all kinds of interesting, challenging and fun things take place.
In just one month all these might be on the calendar: celebrating birthdays with cake and karaoke, painting beach scenes, doing exercises, watching a movie complete with popcorn, competing in Wii bowling and taking a trip to a place like the Toledo Botanical Garden. Each month’s calendar is crammed full of things to do and places to go, all planned by Activities Coordinator Julia Enderle. She says, “We’ve come to embrace members as one family. They always feel welcomed and wanted.”
