YWCA wellness matters

Thanks to YWCA USA and our Board of Directors, staff members are empowered with new online tools and funding to promote rest and resilience.

“Wellness couldn’t be more important,”, said Executive Director Anne-Marie Zell Schwerin, “especially now.”

For the last two years, she said, “we have endured a lot at work and home.” We’ve survived the challenges, “but have we thrived?”

Our Wellness Committee plans include activities and recognition to help reconnect staff social ties that were strained during the many months we couldn’t gather. And a staff newsletter will offer self-care reminders.

“I’m really excited to be a part of the Wellness Committee,” said MFH Office Assistant Brea Green. “Mental health is super important to me and I love the goal of this program.”

Follow us on social media as we share some of the wellness tips we discover. Join us on the wellness journey!

“My hope,” said Anne-Marie, “is that we will build healthy habits together and strengthen our bonds as co-workers and fellow humans.”
