THE STORY:

Omni House is launching an exercise and nutritional counseling program for its 110-member Day Program.

Patients suffering from persistent and severe mental illness are known to live up to 25 years less than the general population due to poor general health. In addition, some of medications taken by this population can foster diabetes.

There is an urgent need to incorporate physical exercise and nutritional counseling for our Day Program members.

Omni House, Inc. is seeking $10,000 for start-up costs for this program. We propose to contract the services of an exercise coach and nutrition counselor in order to plan a program suitable for our population. Preliminary cost estimates for planning consultations are $1,000.

Secondly, we propose to purchase exercise equipment for our members, including treadmill, standing bicycles, elliptical equipment, step masters and mats. Preliminary costs are estimated at $4,000.

Lastly, we propose to utilize the services of both the coach and nutritionist for weekly exercise training and nutrition counseling. An estimated $5,000 would be available for these weekly classes over a six-month period, or $100/each coach for 25 weeks.
