United Counseling Service (UCS) received a $1500 Amplify Grant from RiseVT. The grant funds were used to assist in funding a client and staff Self-Care Day UCS. UCS received the grant as an organization that will provide an important project that will improve the healthy landscape of our community.
“We are excited to have received this grant from RiseVt and to be able to hold a day where staff and clients can take some time for themselves,” said Lorna Mattern, Executive Director of UCS “As an agency we promote many wellness initiatives to provide staff and clients with tools and opportunities to educate themselves and adopt healthy habits.”
The UCS Self Care Day was held on February 26th and gave staff and clients an opportunity to engage in healthy, mindful activities. Some activities included beading, mindfulness coloring, guided meditation, an essential oil workshop, tai chi and much more. UCS has an award winning Staff Wellness program and has received the Worksite Wellness Award from The Vermont Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports five consecutive years.
