In today’s hectic, fast-paced, stressful world, some residents may need asistance to see them through the rough times. To address this need for support groups, the Community Foundation has provided a grant to the Health Awareness Program that promotes a healthier lifestyle and the tools with which to achieve it. It’s designed to deal with three separate issues: depression recovery, smoking cessation and weight loss. Each initiative will be conducted by a group of well trained volunteers, with monthly follow-up sessions.

The grant money will be used towards training and advertising expenses, plus the purchases of text books and other related materials. Although made possible through the Health Awareness Department of the Swan River Seventh-Day Adventist Church, it is essentially a non-religious support program open to all residents. The Foundation is pleased to help make these programs available to residents of the valley.
