With the opening of our Family Impact Wellness Center three years ago, we are now able to provide a beautiful place to hold tutoring for elementary age children and group support services/classes. This is possible due to community volunteers, the generous support of local businesses, and of course YOU!

We encourage you to participate with other community members and run – walk – play and talk as we join together in support of those in need and to promote health and wellness for all.
