Healing communities one woman at a time.
For 25 years, CBWW has provided low and no cost health services to women and families throughout Metro Atlanta. We are committed to the following program areas:
This program includes a Wellness Clinic, which provides low-cost women’s healthcare services focused on preventiv
e care. The Safety Net Clinic provides primary healthcare and chronic disease management to low-income, uninsured women and men through the use of volunteer healthcare professionals. Our Community Breast Health Initiative provides clinical breast exams and breast health education, and facilitates low cost/no-cost screening mammograms and diagnostic services. The Wellness Program also offers an array of health education programs, including cardiovascular disease prevention.
Atlanta Healthy Start:
Through the Healthy Start program, CBWW helps ensure that women and their babies get the “healthy starts” they deserve. The program provides home visitation services, and links women to prenatal care and other needed
services such as parenting classes, housing assistance and health care.
Adolescent Health Program:
Women’s Economic Self-Sufficiency Program:
CBWW engages youth and their parents/caring adults and teaches both groups to talk openly and honestly about sex and sexuality. Throu
gh the “Askable Adult” training, CBWW educates adults on how to talk to youth and then equips educated adults to teach other adults. For the youth, CBWW provides a Summer Youth Leadership Training Program to provide youth with the type of life skills— such as goal setting, decision making and career development—that will help them live up to their fullest potential and make wise choices. CBWW also implements an evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention curriculum, The Teen Health Project
, to area youth and adults in school and community-based settings.
This program assists low to moderate income women in developing a micro–business to become more economically self sufficient. The WESSP provides extensive training in financial literacy, personal and business development, as well as one-o
n-one counseling/coaching, business networking meetings and access to financial resources for on-going support. WESSP has helped women start a variety of micro businesses, including desktop publishing, janitorial service, personal assistance, child care, catering, event planning, and transportation services.
