For example, the have kitchens which facilitates a monthly cooking class where clients are provided with recipes for healthy eating and cooking classes. They have partnered with 69 interns from RN and social worker programs providing the opportunity to work with clients with chronic diseases. They have partnered with the Humane Society and served 150 pets with needed shots and food.
