Be Healthy Berrien is a true community-wide collaboration, led by a dedicated Steering Committee of partner organizations. These partners have come together to build a shared vision to work together in building a healthier community.
YMCA of Southwest Michigan is a founding member of the Be Healthy Berrien partnership, first as two separate organizations – Benton Harbor-St. Joseph YMCA and Niles-Buchanan YMCA – and now as one entity. Mark Weber, Chief Executive Officer at YMCA of Southwest Michigan, has served as the Steering Committee chair for over 5 years providing extra support and leadership in guiding the direction and impact of our projects. Mark has been instrumental in incorporating Be Healthy Berrien’s objectives into the Y’s everyday work, including sharing project staff and teaming up on grant applications and activities.
