The Center for Black Women's Wellness, Inc. (CBWW) is a premier, community-based, family service center committed to improving the health and well-being of underserved Black women and their families.
CBWW recognizes that empowering black women leads to the empowerment of the family and, eventually, the empowerment of the community. That is why CBWW is the ONE place that caters to the physical,mental and economic needs of Atlanta's black women through comprehensive services.
All that we do is guided by the intent to create a community where...
- Women are whole, healed and well.
- Babies are born healthy and thrive in a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment.
- Teens are nurtured and provided opportunities to learn, develop like skills and grow to their fullest potential.
- Women are empowered to channel their creative talents and skills to create their own economic opportunities to improve the quality of their lives.
CBWW was established in 1988 under the auspices of the National Black Women’s Health Project (now called the Black Women’s Health Imperative), a health advocacy and self-help organization (Byllye Avery, founder).
Conceived as a program that would one day be independent, Cheryl Y. Boykins became the leading force behind CBWW gaining its 501(c)(3) status in 1996 and became CBWW’s first President/Chief Executive Officer.
Over the years, CBWW has not only garnered the support of the families served, but has become known among health and social services agencies as a popular referral for women and their families. CBWW is an important resource for Atlanta’s black women and families and those who are underserved.
Although the majority of our clients are African American women, CBWW does not restrict its services based on gender or race.
