Amherst H. Wilder Foundation

"Self-Care -the practice of taking an active role in protecting one's own well-being and happiness, in particular during periods of stress." Wilder staff have been on the front lines of COVID-19 as essential services continue without missing a beat to ensure our clients receive the support they need. From Housing Services to Community Mental Health and Wellness our staff have been rock stars but even rock stars need self-care. We have planned a Self-Care Series and are looking for folks with skills and time to provide Yoga, Breathing Exercises or other soothing activities for 10-15 minutes during the work day. We offer a flexible schedule and a captive audience.
