The Community Programs of Methodist Healthcare Ministries (MHM) focus on bringing together individuals of similar backgrounds, ages, or life situations and creating a community within a community.
Family Wellness Programs
The Family Wellness Programs at the Wesley Health & Wellness Center offers youth, adults and seniors free, safe and fun activities that promote health, wellness and learning skills.
Family Wellness Programs consist of Youth Development programs such as Camp Wesley, a free 8-week summer camp for youth ages 6-18 and "Los Mariachitos de Wesley," a free mariachi and cultural arts program for youth ages 6-18. The Youth Development program at Wesley Health & Wellness Center is a neighborhood recreation program and is not regulated by state child care licensing, and is not a day care facility.
Adult Health & Wellness programming includes exercise classes, parent and family trainings, and community-based support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and the Community Justice Program.
MHM has taken a leadership role in providing practical support to help parents and guardians learn parenting skills so they will be more confident and more competent leaders within their families.
- Meld is a parent support program that offers a place to share parenting information and learn from each other families facing similar challenges.
- Parenting Helping Parents is very similar to Meld in principle, format and lessons, but is implemented through church communities that are interested in developing parenting resources; many of these are in rural areas.
