Northeast Opportunities for Wellness, Inc. (NOW) is a non-profit (501-c-3) human service organization dedicated to providing opportunities in youth wellness, regardless of access to financial resources.

We are dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of youth in the Quiet Corner by insuring each child’s access to social, emotional, and physical wellness.

NOW was founded in 2011 by an all-volunteer board of 20 directors from a 10-town area in Northeastern CT. The organization owes its vision and energy to its founders, the Rawson family of Putnam, who have always believed that youth athletics provide a real and lasting foundation for life-long success.

This would not be possible without the support of local businesses, organizations and community members like you! Your donation of time, funding or resources can make a real difference in the health and happiness of local children.
