2021 Wellness Workshops are being planned!
Plans are underway for the "Creating a Healthier Lifestyle: Holistic Wellness" classes for Spring of 2021. Classes meet for two afternoons a week for four weeks, learning about and discussing how the "Eight Dimensions of Wellness" ( Social, Emotional, Spiritual, Intellectual, Physical, Environmental, Financial and Occupational) work together to build strength and support in our lives. Contact us for further information and get on our update list.

Was developed by a group of advocates attending the 2012 National Prisoner Family Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Demeter Foundation was proud to be part of this process. Families still struggle today to be treated with dignity and respect.
