Established in June 2012, The Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness is a Wisconsin based non-profit organization committed to mobilizing African American women to pursue and sustain mind-body-spirit wellness and to raise the visibility and support of Black women’s health as a community and public health priority. With the mission to eliminate health disparities and other barriers impacting the lives of women and girls of African descent, we work to achieve this through education and outreach, advocacy, support circles, and powerful partnerships.
