The historic Moses Andrus Home serves the centralized ATC Clubhouse.
Built during the mid 1880’s the home is a registered staple in the St. George community. Listed on the St. George Historical Tour, the two-story home was built with a black lava foundation. Once laid the foundation was allowed to settle for one whole year before any more work was started. This measure was taken to insure the house would not crack.
Mimicking the history of the Moses Andrus Home, we believe a young adult’s time at ATC will afford them the opportunity to lay a solid foundation on which they will be able to rely for the rest of their lives as they move on to subsequent successes.
The ATC Clubhouse serves as the collective hub amongst all of our residences. It is here that you will find staff offices, group therapy rooms, student computer lab, putting green, basketball hoop, student lounge, kitchen and multiple common areas for staff and students alike to enjoy.
You will always find ATC students gathering here to take care of their various programmatic needs and commitments, study and complete school work, search for jobs, work on therapy assignments, watch sporting events, eat meals, organize games, put on talent shows or just spend their free time.
