our mission

Black Women For Wellness is committed to the health and well-being of Black women and girls through health education, empowerment and advocacy.

our values

We believe that good health is physical, spiritual, emotional, mental and financial well-being.

We believe in healthy communities where Black women and girls have the ability and resources to grow strong and soar.

We believe that the lifestyles or financial and educational status of Black women and girls must not matter in our ability to implement health decisions or access to health services.

We believe that good health involves an integration of western medicine and holistic health practices to create a better life.

We believe in preventing illness through education, self-empowerment, access, appropriate treatments and interventions, and blending solutions that work for Black women and girls.


our theory of change

Our Theory of Change: Black Women for Wellness believes in the strength and wisdom of our community and allies. That we have the solutions, resources and responsibility to create the shifts and change needed to make an impact on our health status.

Each of us must develop our personal power, hold accountable and support acknowledged leadership, and importantly contribute to our survival and growth as a community.

“The kind of beauty I want most is the hard-to-get kind that comes from within – strength, courage, dignity.”
