PARTICIPATION IN THE ARTS
SUPPORTS YOUR WELLNESS
DEADLINE APRIL 26th
All Allegany County, NY residents over 18 are encouraged to participate in the 2019 Allegany County Community Health Assessment Survey!
This includes students attending college in Allegany County, NY.
Current Population: 46,894 (2017)
Are you asking why local wellness resources and services don't pertain to you or your needs? The last time the Allegany County Community Health Assessment Survey was done (2013), LESS THAN 1% of the Allegany County, NY Population participated. It was Only 408 people out of 46,000+. We can do better! Imagine how much information we would have if EVERY resident participated in the survey?
We are trying to change things with a more accurate representation of our actual population. WE NEED YOUR HELP! The data from this survey helps to inform how local programs are funded and where we spend our time and energy to support the wellness of our community. This means YOU.
USE YOUR VOICE! COMPLETE THE SURVEY HERE.

Also In May
Let's get ready to Rumble!
Launching a New Creative Wellness Workshop Series
“A rumble is a discussion, conversation, or meeting defined by a commitment to lean into vulnerability, to stay curious and generous, to stick with the messy middle problem identification and solving, to break and circle back when necessary, to be fearless in owning our parts, and as psychologist Harriet Lerner teaches, to listen with the same passion with which we want to be heard…. this is our cue to show up with an open heart and mind so we can serve the work and each other, not our egos.” ~ Brene Brown
