The foundation of the FNRC Wellness Initiative focuses on preventative health care and overall personal wellness for individuals who receive FNRC services. It is an entity whose charge is to create employment opportunities for those who receive FNRC services at the same time as addressing health and wellness issues prevalent in our communities. Employment opportunities which are developed by the Wellness Initiative will ensure every person hired is paid no less than minimum wage. To maximize cost-effectiveness, build relationships in our communities, and holistically approach the topic of wellness, we hope to partner with other stakeholders and generic service providers who support individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. The Wellness Initiative recognizes the value in providing support to individuals as they proceed on a wellness journey throughout their lifespan.
