Wellness and Empowered Living Longer

The Well Program is a culturally safe set of services that promote principles of wellness, health, and community. The Well Program is committed to respectful and inclusive participation of seniors ages 55+, regardless of ethnicity, social-economic background, religion or sexual orientation. Most services are available to all genders and some are specifically for those who identify as female.

All programming is free of charge.
