Advancing Healthy Living
Wellness begins with healthy eating and active living. Take the first step toward your wellness goals through free classes, educational sessions, and individualized wellness planning, all made possible through community support.
We're here to support people and get them through the difficulty of changing eating habits and other lifestyle aspects. We don't turn anybody away. No one is perfect--you can always come back and keep trying to improve your lifestyle.
