Mission: A place to for all to learn, grow and share through physical, mental, and spiritual health.
Vision: To build a stronger, healthier, more vibrant community.
We began with a simple question: Dream big! What would you do to make our communities healthier places to live? To answer that question, we rolled up our sleeves and went out into the communities. We talked with individuals, groups and organizations. We partnered with Essentia Health and the Deer River schools to conduct health assessments. We strengthened partnerships with the Deer River Schools, City of Deer River, County, and Leech Lake Tribal Government, and local non-profit organizations. We discovered the health needs of our area are as diverse as we are. Together, we committed to working toward a solution, and the Visioning Team for the Deer River Community & Wellness Center began its work.
