The Family Wellness program was established to foster healthier living. Many services will be provided to our Mono Tribe and Native community. It is our vision that through our combined efforts our families be provided with informative, fun and culturally relevant ways to improve their lives.
Our Core Values:
We understand the importance of inter-generational communication and are working diligently towards creating programs that will value and respect Native American traditions, in order to instill value and respect for all citizens.
Who Are We?
The Family Wellness Program is based on the Prevention Model. It is designed to strengthen individuals’ knowledge and skills. We reach out directly to individuals and groups at risk regarding substance abuse, relationship concerns, education, health and fitness by encouraging steps to change past behaviors. We also promote community education. This is designed to reach the greatest number of people possible by raising awareness about particular Native American issues with the goal of encouraging and supporting individuals for the process of changing destructive behaviors. We promote and co-sponsor Intergenerational Cultural activities such as Basket Making, Language Classes, Beading/Regalia, Drumming/Dancing, Soap Root Brushes and traditional preparation of Acorn Mush. We work with other Native American Organizations to provide a collaborative support system for our Tribal Citizens. By working together within the Native communities and other community resources, we help provide tools for success that an individual may not be able to achieve alone.
