Who We Are
Club Wellness Niagara provides recreation and wellness programming in under-resourced communities in the Niagara Region. We are a place for community members to improve their mental, physical, social and emotional health.
We imagine a community where people experiencing poverty, living with mental illness and/or substance use, physical and/or developmental exceptionalities, surviving trauma and on a recovery journey are provided barrier-free access to supports to improve their mental, emotional, social and physical wellness.
We work in communities where wellness programming is needed and not currently existing, or communities that need support with current programming. We work in multiple settings, including:
public, transitional and supportive housing programs
day programs and centres
Our current Club Members are individuals experiencing poverty, living with mental illness and/or substance use, developmental and physical exceptionalities, surviving trauma, at risk of experiencing homelessness and on a recovery journey.
