Wellness Activities for Seniors
Community West Foundation awarded a $15,000 grant to West Side Community House to continue the Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds for Seniors Program. The popular program received start-up funding from Community West in 2011, and it is encouraging over 300 seniors to participate in the array of health and wellness offerings. We are proud to continue to support this valuable program for our seniors.
The program reaches the nearly 60% of seniors that have a gross income at or below the federal poverty level, and the nearly 70% that suffer from physical or mental disabilities.
