SOfit can be used at group homes, day centers, centers for independent living, community ed programs and within our SOMN delegations.
SOfit is a program that will help you improve and protect the health and wellness of people with and without intellectual disabilities. The responsibility to take care of our health is personal, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it alone.
SOfit focuses on four pillars of health and wellness: emotional, physical, nutrition and social. We do this by offering resources and funds for organizations to implement the four pillars of health that will work the best for them.
