Who Are We?
Advocates for Community Wellness, Inc. (A4CW) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit local community organization. We are a grass root social support advocacy group.
Advocates for Community Wellness is a faith-based and Christ centered health promotion and disease prevention ministry without walls. We are a tight niche group of health professionals such as nutritionists, culinary arts enthusiasts, health educators, fitness trainers, nurses, healthcare providers and people who have a genuine interests in better health and nutrition.
Since 2003, we have been serving communities in the Greater Chicago Metropolitan Area through our Annual Diabetes, Heart Health, Cancer & Mental Health Awareness Breakfast & Summit. We also host and participate in monthly wellness forums and support groups, health fairs, and conduct nutrition education and hands on healthy cooking classes.
The three founding members (Dale M. Cain, Emma Cunningham, and Evangelist LaVada Patterson) along with the current board members and supporters have invested their personal resources to support and advanced the health ministry work, "Creating of Culture of WELLTH."
Our main objective is to bring awareness and health education to families, school age children, and seniors who reside in under-resourced areas and are at higher risk of developing health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and other chronic conditions.
