 Mission: The Health and Wellness Division develops, implements, and evaluates programs and services that foster physical, mental, social, and intellectual development. This is accomplished while nurturing the individual’s capacity to interact in pro-social ways that foster individual, family and community development. We strive to remove the stigma associated with health problems such as HIV/AIDS, substance abuse and mental illness.
