Monday, February 18th is Family Day

Monday, February 18th is Family Day

Family Day is a day when we celebrate families and spend time together as we cherish our relationships with the people that mean the most to us. Many families, however, face difficult struggles and need professional help to overcome or address these challenges. On Family Day, please consider helping families by donating to Carizon’s programs and services. You can make a difference.

February is Wellness Month at Carizon...What are You Doing for Self-care?

February is Wellness Month at Carizon...What are You Doing for Self-care?

We know that February can be a tough month for feeling the winter blahs. At Carizon, we want to help counter those winter blahs by promoting activities of self-care. Check out this blog for some tips on activities that you can incorporate in the month of February – and all year long – for your emotional, physical, social and financial well-being.

We’ve also designated Wednesday, February 20th as “Me Day.” We’re proposing that members of our community do at least one thing on February 20th that is dedicated to their self-care and to share it with us on Twitter @carizon and use the hashtag #MEdayWR. We all know that we cannot take care of others if we do not take care of ourselves. So on February 20th, let’s walk that talk.
