The Center is one of the nation’s premier providers of whole-person wellness programs, a model that encompasses the interdependent dimensions of physical, social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual and vocational wellness.
But we can’t do it alone. Collaboration has been key to our success. Valuable partnerships with a variety of local organizations—like AARP, YMCA, Charlottesville Parks & Recreation Services, ACAC, and others—make programs and services more accessible to all. Partner programs meet at the Center, unless noted otherwise.
