Family and Seniors Wellness Center
Women of Excellence, Inc. is seeking to launch a Family and Seniors Wellness Center within our “high need” North Philadelphia region of the city. Amid the advent of recent events, including: the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as, its impact on senior citizens and communities of color, the need for the center is even more urgent, as our nation continues to grapple with pervasive racial disparities and civil unrest. The Family and Seniors Wellness Center will be located in a state-of-the-arts corporate suite within a local residential development. This resource hub will bring together partners from various health, mental health, education, social services, and cultural institutions from throughout the community to establish satellite programs and services in one central location.
Through strategic partnerships the Center will also seek to provide both COVID-19 testing and vaccinations for its high risk population. Additional service offerings of the Center will include primary health care, behavioral health & life skills counseling, afterschool tutoring, youth enrichment programs, arts & culture activities; parent & family education workshops; senior citizen recreation & wellness programs; as well as, GED, education & career development programs.
The goal of this project is to improve the quality of life of at-risk populations within impoverished regions of the city, including children, youth, families and senior citizens, focusing our efforts on the (8) Dimensions of Wellness identified by SAMHSA (the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). --- Our goal is that the Center will serve as a successful demonstration site which can be replicated throughout the city and beyond.
