Together with Monumental Sports and the Washington Mystics, CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield (CareFirst) is committed to supporting the health and well-being of the communities it serves.
In Southeast D.C.’s Congress Heights neighborhood, CareFirst and the Mystics are partnering with DC Greens in various programs, including the Well at Oxon Run. The Well is a resident-led intergenerational urban farm and community wellness space that empowers community members to define and create wellness on their own terms.
The Well founded by DC
The Well is an intergenerational farm and community wellness space in the Congress Heights neighborhood of Ward 8, in Southeast, D.C. This space has been envisioned alongside residents of the community, and is now led by Jaren Hill Lockridge, our Director of The Well and a resident of the neighborhood. DC Greens has built a channel for resources to flow into this community – filling The Well – so that neighbors have what they need to define and create wellness on their own terms.
