More About Wellness House
Wellness House is a not-for-profit organization that exists to provide programs and support for people living with cancer. The organization serves more than 1,600 people every year. The idea for the house began with three women, two who had survived cancer, who wanted to help others with the struggles associated with the illness. Before long, the group grew to 20 people who formed a planning committee to raise money for the project. The current facility was made possible through donations and grants. All programs and services are provided free of charge.
