Center for Black Women’s Wellness

The Center for Black Women's Wellness (CBWW) is a community-based center in Atlanta dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of underserved women and their families. Our direct services address the physical, mental and economic needs of women, with the premise that when you improve the health of a woman you improve the health of her family and, ultimately, her community.

The Center for Black Women's Wellness delivers comprehensive healthcare services to low-to-moderate income women. For pregnant women, we offer intensive case management services providing home visitation, education, and support to help optimize a woman's health before, during and after pregnancy. To help increase women's economic self-sufficiency and her ability to achieve good health; financial independence workshops are offered as well. In all, CBWW services have attributed to more uninsured women accessing preventive healthcare, and over 80% of our moms receiving prenatal care in their first trimester of pregnancy.

The Center for Black Women's Wellness was founded 30 years ago, initially to conduct empowerment groups to develop resiliency among low income women, with the guiding principle that women often had the solutions to their challenges within themselves. Based on the early successes of CBWW's culturally appropriate, community engagement strategies, CBWW later responded to expressed community needs and expanded its services to offer limited healthcare. Today, CBWW provides services to address health in a variety of ways, taking into account the major factors that prevent women from being whole, healed and well. This makes CBWW a vital resource for economically vulnerable women and families in Metropolitan Atlanta for many years to come.
