HelPing Women in 2015
Last year CWUW reached 165 women through our programs. We conducted our 7 Dimensions of Wellness program at Indianapolis Healthy Start and the YMCA Avondale Meadows. Once again, our SPROUT Program was funded through Indy Food Fund. We provided a 10 week garden program, organized a tour of area gardens, and conducted a garden 101 workshop.
In 2015, we partnered with Indy Parks for our Sisters Together: Move More, Eat Better conducting yoga, Zumba, and nutritional workshops. Marion County Health Department and Purdue Extension provided workshops on cooking, sodium reduction, and nutrition for women. Our 5thClothing Drive and Exchange event allowed us to assist 75 families with clothing.
