(Fiscal Year 2018-2019)
Community and family well-being programs support individual and family wellness through a variety of critical social services that cover healthcare navigation, wellness activities, basic and civic benefits, counseling and adult education, English classes, citizenship and immigration, and a variety of advocacy projects.
Mrs. Liang is a 70-year-old participant in CASL’s Enhance Fitness exercise program focusing on senior wellness. She feels empowered by having made friends who reduce her loneliness, stress, depression, and anxiety. Also, exercising regularly has improved her muscles, bone health, and balance—which helps protect her from falls. Mrs. Liang also participates in CASL’s Savvy Caregiver Program to learn how to care for her mother (who suffers from dementia) and reduce her own risk of dementia. And now, to give back to the community, Mrs. Liang has been volunteering in the CASL Citizenship and Immigration program and Pine Tree Senior Council.
