We believe in making a difference.

Identifying and meeting the health and wellness needs of the community we serve is an important part of our mission.

We regularly assess these needs every three years with our Community Health Needs Assessment to identify and evaluate the health-related needs of our community. And we offer a wide variety of Community Wellness Resources designed to promote a healthy lifestyle for our area’s families and the members of our local workforce.

We invite you to learn more about our wellness programs. You may also want to consider offering your own time and skills to serve the health needs of our community. We’re very proud of our team of volunteers who generously contribute more than 70,000 hours of their time each year. We offer many different types of Volunteer Opportunities and are always ready to welcome new members to our team.

To enroll your children in the kids club, simply complete this registration form.

Childhood is a critical period of growth, development and learning. Positive health behaviors — like getting enough sleep, eating nutritious foods and being physically active — can help prevent diseases and improve health outcomes for children. This multi-week program teaches kids about the importance of developing healthy habits and lifestyles.

Participants will learn how to make nutritious food choices, be physically active, understand their emotions and prepare healthy meals. Best of all, they will learn how to make small changes that lead to a lifetime of health and wellness!
