You can change a life by GIVING

Happy 2024 from Hope Haven! Ringing in the New Year, many individuals set new goals and commitment to accomplish a healthier, productive life. The statistics in 2024 show that 50% already quit their goal in February or March… but not for our Rock Valley My Day!

This group has been utilizing the wellness services for the past year as part of the My Day program. Every Thursday morning, they work with Jordyn, a personal trainer, at the Rock Valley Hegg Wellness Center, striving to maintain a healthier lifestyle.

The program’s purpose is to ensure that individuals with disabilities feel like they are part of a community by participating in exercises, learning how to properly care for their body, developing healthy eating habits, and enjoying the greatest experience possible.  

During their session with Jordyn, they concentrate on the upper and lower body strength and flexibility to offer a great cardiovascular workout. “I’ve noticed substantial improvements in their functional strength and flexibility. I’ve also observed a growth in social interaction that leads to great conversations, which I enjoy during our sessions,” says Jordyn. “Building a trustful relationship with the residents, I hope this is just the beginning of a partnership with Hope Haven, and to expand additional programs in the near future.”  

Following each session, the group meets with Amanda, Hope Haven’s My Day DSP, to discuss a health topic and enjoy a nutritious snack. “Their favorite part of the session is always kicking the ball around,” says Amanda. “They love to talk to Jordyn, quiz him about his life, and jokingly give him a hard time. I do see improvements in them. After their exercise, they do feel great, and appreciate Jordyn for dedicating his time with them.”

With your support, Hope Haven will be able to offer more opportunities to individuals like My Day, to pursue a healthy lifestyle and discover what it means to be a part of a community. Your contribution enables us to continue growing while making a difference in the lives of those we serve.
