THE FOUNDATION-- Mental, Physical, and Spiritual Health of Black Women

In order to achieve wholeness/wellness one must be healthy mentally, physically, and spiritually. We want to begin by addressing these issues. In addition to the presentations, each presenter will guide audience through a process that they can incorporate into their daily lives.

OBTAINING SECURITY-- Affordable Housing & Homeownership

It is difficult for one to build a life without stable housing. It is imperative that we ensure that Black Women and Children have safe, clean and affordable housing, preferably homeownership. It provides security and an asset for wealth building.

BUILDING WEALTH--Business Ownership – Accessing Contracts and Capital

Black Women are the fastest growing segment of new businesses. We are quitting jobs and taking the leap, enough of training someone who ends up being our supervisor. I am good enough to train, but not good enough to have the job. However, our revenues are low, due to lack of access to contracts and capital. In many cases, even being awarded a contract without the money to execute the contract is still a major issue, these must go hand-in-hand.


How do we improve our conditions, what are the activities we must undertake to improve the environment in which we exist? What groups and organizations are making a difference in the lives of Black Women and families and how do we get involved?
