Community Life

The mission of the Community Life Department is to establish a culture of wellness by encouraging and empowering individuals and staff to make healthy, informed, and well-balanced choices. The department focuses on supporting our individuals and staff in three areas: fitness, nutrition, and wellness.

Activities for Homes and Apartments

Throughout the week, we host various events focused on fitness ranging from floor hockey to dance classes at our central office and walking groups in the community. We share healthy recipes and coordinate CSA (community supported agriculture) shares to our program sites, increasing access to fresh and nutritious food. We support individual wellness through our Community Life Calendar, community resource pages, and weekly weekend planning tools.  Making friends and socializing within the community are essential for living a full life, so we encourage it!

Opportunities for Staff

As part of the work of the Community Life Department, we promote and support fitness programs and wellness classes and activities for our staff members.  We are proud to have a workplace culture that supports a healthy lifestyle.
