Vincent House was the recipient of a Humana Foundation grant to implement their wellness empowerment initiative. The funds received allowed us to purchase a new Dodge Silverado which will help expand our garden. The fresh vegetables from our garden are being used in our own prepared meals. Additionally the grant will allow us to purchase more tools so we can produce more to share with the community.
The goal of this Wellness Initiative is to address health needs within the context of our vocational services. This project will ensure that members have the opportunity to improve their health, quality of life, and longevity. In addition to the items as described above, funds will help educate in nutrition, mind and body connection, and with wellness consultations.
Overall, this new initiative has allowed members to work outdoors, learn new skills, and take control of their own wellness. We are grateful for this grant and words cannot express the enthusiasm we feel to make this Wellness Initiative an integral part of our recovery.
