The Harlem Wellness Center is a 501c3 nonprofit organization created to provide health programming in communities that are consequently most vulnerable to adult onset diseases (diabetes, obesity, hypertension, heart disease) preventable by lifestyle choices. Their goal is to make high quality holistic health and wellness services accessible for all.
The CCS grant will continue to support the Active Bodies Yoga Program. This will increase the number of Morningside Heights and Harlem residents experiencing evidence-based health benefits of yoga.
The CCS grant funded two programs "Power of Nature" and "Active Bodies", which includes health walks and wellness retreats.
