ICFPP Welcomes you to our:
Live Healthy, Live Active
Community Wellness Garden & Recreation Complex
Funded by CRIHB's ACORNS Grant, the Community Wellness Garden and Recreation Complex is in its beginning stages of implementation. After completing a community health assessment, sadly it was determined that our community faced high levels of obesity, commercial tobacco use, unemployment, and living at or below the federal poverty guidelines. The goal of the Wellness Garden and Recreation Complex is to combat chronic disease in our communities. We hope that by increasing access to fruits and vegetables and physical fitness activies our community members will adopt a healthier more active lifestyle.
We welcome all volunteers to get involved with the garden clean up, prep, planting, maintenance, and harvesting. We are looking for individuals interested in investing in a healthier lifestyle. We need you, and your community needs you.
Please call our office 707-544-8509 to get involved today.
Healthy Active Native Communities (HANC) Grant
Funded by the American Association of Indian Practitioners, the ICFPP was awarded funds to expand the Community Wellness Garden and Recreation Complex.
The Healing Our Own People (HOOP) Grant funded through CRIHB focuses on community specific cultural ways to make our people more aware of suicide awareness prevention.
We will be hosting the first Honoring Our Youth session on March 26th at Ya-Ka-Ama where we will be signing up youth for the program, watching a film, and hosting a small raffle. We will also be recognizing outstanding Native youth in our communities. To nominate youth, please fill out and return the nomination form below.
The second Honoring Our Youth session on April 9th at Ya-Ka-Ama will repeat the March session, but it will also include a cultural activity, planting in the Community Garden, and a large raffle.
If you are a youth (ages 10-24) or have youth that you would like to particpate in the program, please call (707) 544-8509 or email here.
