BENEFITING: The Center For Black Womens Wellness Cbww Inc
The Center for Black Women's Wellness, Inc., (CBWW) is a non-profit organization that provides free and low-cost services to empower black women, and their families, toward physical, mental and economic wellness. Founded in 1988 as a program of the National Black Women's Health Project (now the Black Women's Health Imperative), CBWW's initial purpose was to conduct self-help group development in several public housing facilities in Atlanta. Based on the early success of CBWW's culturally appropriate community engagement strategies, CBWW expanded its services in the early 1990's to offer limited women's healthcare. In 1996, CBWW incorporated as an independent, nonprofit organization. With a track record of providing culturally competent preventive and women's healthcare services to underserved women, CBWW opened a volunteer-led primary healthcare "Safety Net" clinic in 2008, and volunteer mental health services in 2013. Although the majority of our clients are African American women, CBWW does not restrict its services based on gender or race.
