Supporting and helping others is part of our DNA. The concert touring industry, and those who work in it have been severely impacted, with no idea on when they will return to work. We have elected to support and give 10% of our operating profit directly back to those in need.
Founded in July 2019 by Courtney + Paul Klimson, The Roadie Clinic is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated in their mission to empower + heal roadies and their families by providing services + resources tailored to the struggles of the touring lifestyle.
In October 2019, they purchased a commercial building in Niles, MI that will serve as the headquarters for the organization, with the longterm goal being that of opening other locations in various regions around the country.
The Roadie Clinic will have an online presence and a physical presence. The building, once construction is complete, will provide five individual lofts, family meals and an incredible community for roadies and their families in need of support.In addition to in-house and virtual therapy services, The Clinic will provide education in managing finances, sharing how peers have lived a sober life on the road, improving communication skills for both career and relationships back home, promoting self-care and avoiding burnout.
The Klimson’s, along with an incredible Board of Directors, team of volunteers, and industry partners, have been working tirelessly to create awareness, raise funds, and create programming while the industry has been shut down. Their ultimate goal is to have both the building and services up and running by the time touring starts in 2021.
Their vision says it all: Healthy road life. Healthy home life.
