ViVe Wellness

A nonprofit organization

$48,290 raised

ViVe Wellness is a local organization that offers great programs which provide support for Denver's low-income communities with mental and physical health, wellness, school, healthy food, youth workforce, outdoor adventures, and migrant housing. ViVe greatly appreciates your financial support to help grow our current programs. Visit our "Programs" page for details about each of our programs!

Our greatest need at this time is money for school supplies and staff bonuses in our After School program, sponsoring youth mentorship in our Youth Workforce program, additional food for families in other counties in our Food Security program, and financial support for transportation to our ViVe School. 



Mission

ViVe's mission is to build wellness for families in communities of need through education, empowerment and physical activity.

Background Statement

ViVe Wellness was founded in 2015 by Yoli Casas, award winning coach, athlete and exercise physiologist. She has over 40 years of experience in coaching and working with children and adults in athletics, physical activity, and wellness education. ViVe addresses the health equity and wellness needs of many of Denver's low-income Latino youth, who face significant health disparities and often lack access to engaging physical activity. ViVe promotes public health, mental health, leadership, and social and economic well-being. Our vision: "In mundo donde todos pueden jugar" - A world where everyone can play.

Since 2015, ViVe has served more than 2,000 children ages 4-18 and their families through in-school and out-of-school physical activity programs that use a two-generational approach to address health needs of adults and their children. Over the last four years, ViVe has evolved significantly - doubling the number of youth served each year and continuing to tailor programming to the needs of the underserved and immigrant communities. ViVe has expanded from only offering swim lessons and community exercise classes to also offering more kids sports specific training, mentoring, workforce development and leadership development opportunities. ViVe has also evolved significantly since working closely with the city and county of Denver helping migrants secure housing, education, and employment.
