Inspire Wellness Initiative

As a non-profit organization, Family Wellness is dedicated to providing need based community wellness programming to help people cook well, move well and live well for life. By providing programs that impact a community need, Family Wellness creates a place where health and healing connect with people, programs, and facilities. When we commit to a life of wellness, we are able to unlock the potential within us and inspire others to find their own inner strength. In short, togetherness is wellness. Join our mission to inspire healthy lifestyles and make a lasting impact! 

The Three Pillars of the Inspire Wellness Initiative are: Cook Well encourages better food choices through healthy cooking skills. Move Well motivates healthy lifestyles through physical activity for all ages. Live Well builds a vibrant community through volunteerism and support. Programs focusing on the 3 pillars, we aim to battle chronic disease and support health by inspiring and building healthy habits today to create healthy futures for tomorrow.

Cook Well

Our Cook Well pillar encourages better food choices through programs such as Healthy Cooking in the Classroom. Family Wellness provides hands on cooking instruction in the classroom to local elementary students. In the 2022-2023 school year, over 430 classes were taught and 3729 children were impacted in 2022! Our staff along with volunteers taught children many different food preparation skills such as: opening cans, slicing, mixing, dry and wet measuring, and heat element safety.

Move Well

Our Move Well pillar offers a variety of programs that motivate healthy lifestyles through physical activity for all ages. Family Wellness provides inclusive opportunities for children, teens and adults through our Adaptive Swim Lessons to develop essential skills for a lifetime of safety, confidence, and physical activity around water. In 2022, we offered 216 lessons at a reduced rate, impacting 33 individuals such as youth with physical and mental impairments, teenage and adult non-swimmers, and families with financial needs.

Live Well

Our Live Well pillar helps build a healthier community by offering programs that provide an opportunity for individuals to improve their overall health and relieve stress by inspiring long-lasting healthy habits. Our Life Strides program was created to help individuals use exercise as a way to manage mental wellness. Through partnerships with local health care providers, we were able to serve 80 adults with mental health issues such as depression, stress and anxiety in 2022. 

Your support helps sustain and develop these programs for years to come!
