Our vision for the future is to provide more wellness activities for youth and families, such as healthy lifestyle education, stress management education, STI prevention, and family exercise activities. Our staff are currently planning multigenerational events which will help connect our elders and our youth in fun and healthy ways. We also hope to be able to provide more in-home care services in the future, to keep our aging population in their own homes.
