By its very existence, Apex Wellness Center contributes to the social fabric of the Foster-Powell neighborhood by providing high-quality wellness services. Owner Rebecca Schacker calls Foster-Powell her home and through Apex she’s become an active member of her community.

Apex participates in the Foster Powell-Neighborhood Association (FPNA) and Foster Area Business Association (FABA), and the FABA events Fun on Foster and monthly summer Cruise-Ins at the Junior Achievement building. Apex also has a massage booth at the FPNA-sponsored National Night Out. All of these events were created to promote the betterment of the Foster-Powell neighborhood.

Promoting a healthier, greener future for the Foster-Powell neighborhood is important to the staff at the Apex Wellness Center. That’s why Apex participates in and helps organize the FPNA-sponsored Garden Tour, which allows Apex to show off its rain gardens and explain how they aid in water management. Apex has also held a Foster Green Initiative meeting to gather community input on the development of the Foster Corridor. Apex also purchases coupon and ad space in the Chinook Book, a coupon book that features local environmentally minded businesses. All proceeds from the sale of the Chinook Book at Apex go to the FPNA.
