A.C.E., Inc. is a consumer-driven agency and caring community whose mission is to reduce the isolation of consumers of mental health agencies, and to improve their quality of life. This goal is met by challenging, encouraging and offering hope to members through peer support, educational services, social and recreational activities, advocacy, and opportunities for community involvement.

We are a mental health organization with a focus on wellness, recovery and peer support.


Advocacy, Choices & Empowerment (ACE), Inc.

We offer two scheduled activities a day, a noon meal, and daily van transportation. Our activities calendar has included trips to museums, our annual overnight experience, movies, the theater, trail hiking, fishing, bowling, bocce tournaments, Bingo, corn-hole tournaments, holiday parties and supportive or educational speakers from our community. Our members pay dues of just $5.00 per month to help with the costs related to our activities, community trips and special events. The transportation we offer also helps members to keep their doctor and counseling appointments. 

We offer peer support, self-help and educational opportunities, and our NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) Connection support group called Hopeful Hearts. Recently, we offered the WRAP (Wellness Recovery Action Planning) program to our members. Additionally, our facility boasts a computer room, a music room, game area and exercise equipment, and a washer and dryer for members’ use. Members also have the opportunity to take part in committee work, our board of directors and our monthly all-members meetings. 

Finally, A.C.E. attempts to perform various outreach projects. Currently, we provide food to assist in feeding residents of our local domestic violence shelter, our homeless shelter and our local crisis unit. We have regularly visited area nursing homes, and have participated in projects to benefit Head Start and Big Brothers/Big Sisters in the past, as well.

General Information

The prevalence of mental illness nationwide is on the rise. Because isolation is so prevalent among people who live with mental illness, A.C.E. provides a unique support system which often feels like family to those who drop in regularly. A.C.E. strives to meet the mental, emotional, physical, social and spiritual needs of its members, all under the umbrella of hope! We exist to offer hope to those who feel hopeless.

Public Transit

A.C.E. provides limited transportation though the use of two vans. Members are offered rides daily both to and from the clubhouse as well as various other planned social and recreational activities. Members simply need to call ahead of time to let the van driver know they will be needing transportation on that day. Vans leave to bring members in at approximately 9:00AM and then leave to transport home beginning at 3:00 in the afternoon.
