Many thanks to the Women’s Fund of Portage County for supporting ODC’s new health and fitness program for women with disabilities! The purpose of this program, called Health Matters, is to improve fitness, increase knowledge about healthy lifestyles, and teach family, staff and friends how to support participants in achieving their goals.

Health and wellness are an important component of an active and meaningful life for individuals at all levels of ability. Through this program, women with disabilities will develop an improved sense of wellness and self-image, increased self-confidence, and increased ability to function independently in their daily lives.
