Sweet Livity™ serves the following vulnerable communities through its wellness programs: immigrants and refugees, youth, elders, labor activists, farmers, poor and low income, people with special health care needs, communities of color, Millennials, seniors, LBGTQ across the gender spectrum, low income, and differently abled. We work with people who identify with and organizations who specifically serve these communities.
Sweet Livity™ relies on primary data from client self-assessments and client secondary data to determine whether or not the “end beneficiary groups” served will benefit one or more of the above named demographic groups, e.g., annual reports, demographic surveys, etc.
In other cases, Sweet Livity analyzes available census data to track the socio economic status and well-being of communities served by a client.
Context for Who We Work With and How
Sweet Livity provides a range of wellness services which impact three pillars of effectiveness and sustainability: Self Care, Community Care, and Business Care.
Sweet Livity began offering wellness retreats and coaching in people’s homes and later began offered wellness retreats and coaching for organizations. Learning what supports people to manage stress and increase personal sustainability led to articulation of the Self-Care pillar.
Studying the connection between people’s stress and the culture of their workplaces, Sweet Livity began offering services to support leaders to gain awareness about and address the ways they unconsciously contribute to inequitable work place practices which trigger stress and trauma for workers who already experience multiple internal and external oppressions based on cultural differences of language, age, race, ethnicity, gender, ability, sexuality, citizenship status and geographic boundaries. Learning how to shift the way leaders engage workers and partners so that everyone’s authentic voice is heard, understood, affirmed and included motivated articulation of the Community Care pillar.
Yet, neither pillar adequately addressed growing economic disparities for many workers who live in households and communities with more limited resources and services. Recent work supporting nonprofits to become more entrepreneurial, encouraging cooperative business efforts for collective impact, and cultivating greater equitable economic investment into our businesses and within the vulnerable communities where we operate inspired articulation of the Business Care pillar.
