A Community Opportunity: Family Wellness Program




Family Wellness Pamphlet


All families enrolled in the Family Wellness Program:

• Connect with a personal Family Wellness Counselor to support the family.

• Complete a family survey and assessment that identifies areas of success and areas in which the family may wish to improve. Topics explored as a part of the survey include communication, discipline, nutrition and physical activity.

• Have the option of participating in group and individual-level wellness programs specifically designed for local families.

• Gain access to behavioral health professionals dedicated to the health and well-being of your family.

The service is offered in the Lancaster Community as a part of the commitment of CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health to supporting local families. There is no cost for families to enroll and complete the family survey and assessment.

PowerPacks Project

The Penn Manor School District is offering families an opportunity to participate in the PowerPacks food program.  The PowerPacks Project is designed to help families stretch their grocery money, prepare low-cost meals for their families over the weekend, and have their children fed well and ready to learn and thrive for the rest of the week.

Participation in PowerPacks is based on income and family size, as well as the family’s ability to pick up food at designated locations each Thursday, beginning September 28th.

Enrollment is on an ongoing basis throughout the year as availability allows.

If you are interested in receiving an application for the PowerPacks Project, please contact your school counselor.
