SUPPORTING WELLNESS WHILE APART

In this new world we live in together, some old habits may be rearing their ugly heads, even if at first all was good.  Long weeks at home with no sure idea when it will end, can, at the very least be very stressful. Our program encourages us to stay healthy together while living apart. This program includes weekly meetings for discussion and as well as nutritional suggestions and tips. Whether your goals are to lose weight, maintain your fitness, or just to connect with others during these difficult times, this program is meant for us all.

Once weekly we will meet together to talk. All meetings are held on Zoom, a virtual meeting platform.

When We’ll Talk:  Mondays at 3:30pm

Forever in Service

The New Year often brings feelings of positive improvement and change – a new year, a time to focus on living a better life and providing support for those around us. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a pioneer in the world of positive improvement and change, we celebrate him and his work, MLK Day, Monday January 18.  For over 20 years, MLK Day has been a time that individuals were encouraged to volunteer their time to improve their communities.

You can help us build a better us. Be involved with us.

Join us for our Days of Service.

Engage along side us to help our community. Together we can make a difference.

Donate! Our goal is to collect over 180 pounds of non-perishable food, household staples and other items at each Y. That’s a total of 1,800 pounds! Every canned good and toilet paper roll counts. Collection points are:
