Welcome to Black Women 4 Healthy Living, the only local nonprofit that focuses exclusively on Black women’s health, wellness, and wellbeing.

Who we are

We have a holistic approach to our work because our health and wellbeing intersect with where we live, work, and play. Living well is not just about being in good health, eating well, and being physically fit. It is also about feeling safe, having access to proper health care, living in a just society, and having the ability to improve your situation.

We believe if you heal the Black woman, you heal the Black family. Our healing is more than emotional, mental, or physical. It is also relational, financial, and environmental.
Our work requires us to consider all these things when advocating, creating programs, and lifting the Black women in our community.

Black Women’s Health Coalition and Sickle Cell Blood Drive

The Black Women’s Health Coalition and Sickle Cell Blood Drive are on September 24, 2022, at Corinthian Baptist Church, 814 School Street, from noon to 3:00 pm. Our focus this month is Sickle Cell.

The Black Women’s Health Coalition is a FREE program that addresses the health disparities of Black women. We approach this holistically: physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially, and with a justice lens. Free childcare is available.

The Sickle Cell Blood Drive is provided by the American Red Cross. We need Black people to give blood. Our blood saves live! Please register here. Walk-in will be accepted.

If you have questions, call me at 515-778-1348.
