Spiritual Wellness

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.
— 2 Timothy 1:7 Amplified Bible (AMP)

Vision Statement

Every urban woman will create a culture of wellness. 

MISSION STATEMENT

CWUW empowers women and their families living in urban communities to take action in their health and well-being through education, advocacy, prevention, and care.

7 Dimensions of Wellness

7 Dimensions of Wellness includes: physical, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual, emotional and social. These dimensions of wellness stress a balance in lifestyle and support healthy living. CWUW believes that addressing each dimension leads to healthy decision-making and a healthy family structure. 

We provide a supportive setting and support system to assist the participant in understanding the various ways she can approach successful healing and have a better understanding of why preventive health is important.


Empower Women

Empower women living in urban settings as health care consumers and decision-makers.

Coordination and Integration

Create healthier communities with more integrated and coordinated women's health delivery systems targeted to women. Assist women in the navigation of health and wellness services including mental health.

Innovative Model for Health Promotion

Promote health and wellness and offer tools and resources through various marketing mechanisms, such as social marketing.

Improve health outcomes for women

Eliminate health disparities for women who are under-served due to age, gender, gender identity race/ethnicity, education, income, sexual orientation,  or any woman who may feel she can't successfully access quality health care. 

Spread the Success

Spread the success of our women's health programs to communities across the country that may be interested in replicating the CWUW model.

Social Determinants of Health

"The social determinants of health are the circumstances in which people are born, grow up, live, work, and age, as well as the systems put in place to deal with illness. These circumstances are in turn shaped by a wider set of forces: economics, social policies, and politics." - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

CWUW acknowledges the barriers which are in place to prevent women and their families from being proactive in their own health. Through advocacy and education, we hope to reduce these barriers and empower women to live healthier lives.
