The Willkommen committee recently stopped by The New Ulm WELLness Collective to learn about all the exciting changes. The Well was established in 2016 and in less than five years, the collective quickly grew from six women to 18 women, each bringing innovative health and wellness opportunities to the community. This rapid growth has necessitated more oversight, building renovations, and the decision in 2020 to move to a non-profit model, incorporating as a 501(c)3, and appointing a board and executive director. Interim Executive Director Lori Mathiowetz said becoming a non-profit allows them to do more in the community with the ability to apply for grants. The grants allow people who may not be able to afford services be able to participate. All members are qualified health and wellness practitioners.
