The Partnership

Lots of people ask if we are a YMCA or if we are Sanford Health. The answer is Yes! Family Wellness is a partnership between Sanford Health and the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties. We learn from the experience from the YMCA’s rich 125+ year history in our community, and work along side them in helping impact community health through innovative programs, services, and facilities.
