On Tuesday, October 10, 2023, World Mental Health Day, we celebrated the grand opening of our new community space. Supporters, leaders, and elected officials joined us to commemorate this significant milestone. We enjoyed typical Salvadoran bites as all learned about the programs and support that will be available to our community in the serene safe space that has been created in the heart of South Yonkers.
Annual Moves for Mental Health Event
Saturday, July 15, 2023
Our annual Moves for Mental Health event aimed to destigmatize mental health by highlighting the mind-body connection. The goal was to encourage overall physical and mental wellness through literal and figurative steps that are attainable on a daily basis. This included providing our community with resources that help alleviate gaps tied to social drivers of health which are typically what cause daily stress.
We educated and empowered our community members through our 3 pillar's, the 3 C's: community, conversation, and culture. This included, free community resources, art activities, BBQ food, DJ, photo booth, dance classes, wellness presentations, and much more!
