Meet Us in May

Join us for a month of discovery!

New to Wellness House? Find your path to wellness by joining Wellness House staff to learn how you can benefit from programs. In addition to weekly orientation sessions, program area open house events will be provided as opportunities to meet the Wellness House team, learn what we offer and how you can get started in programs. 

We are a team of warm, caring experts ready to support anyone impacted by cancer, including those who are newly diagnosed, in treatment, post-treatment, caregivers, and families – all provided at no cost.

Whether you are new to Wellness House or already familiar with us, we are offering a month-long series of in-person and online programs to help you discover new ways to thrive during cancer.
