The Stockbridge Area Wellness Coalition is composed of community leaders and residents working to make their community one of the healthiest in the Midwest. The coalition came together in the winter of 2011 to develop a long term wellness plan that would satisfy the health needs of the community. The coalition reviewed available health data and benchmarks for successful programs, analyzed current service needs, and discussed actionable items that would fit Stockbridge’s health profile.
While the Wellness Center was the focal point of the 2012-13 Comprehensive Plan, there were 12 interventions in Stockbridge, including SRSLY and wellness-related field trips, the coalition experienced a bit of a windfall as the Chelsea Wellness Center donated roughly $100,000 worth of exercise equipment to Stockbridge. Some of the pieces went to Stockbridge Schools but the majority will be used at the new Stockbridge Wellness Center. The 5,400 square foot facility will offer strength and cardio equipment, group classes, fitness assessments and more.
The 2016-17 Stockbridge Wellness Plan includes funding for SRSLY Stockbridge, several park and open space improvements, and Tide Me Over.
The ultimate goal is to create a culture of wellness in Stockbridge and help individuals, families, organizations and businesses promote healthy lifestyle choices for everyone.
