Advocates For Community Wellness takes a wholistic approach to wellness. This is why we have created our Culture of WELLTH Initiative. Wellness is more than simply being in good physical and emotional health. Our educational programs strive to incorporate all 8 aspects of wellness: physical, intellectual, emotional, social,
spiritual, occupational, financial, and environmental.
Education is key, and this is why we have created our Healthy Families Equal Healthy Communities Wellness Initiative. The Wellness Initiative objective is two-fold: 1) provide health education and resources to improve health and wellbeing and 2) help families in underserved communities achieve the opportunity to be as healthy as possible. This annual initiative offers a series of hands-on cooking classes, monthly wellness workshops and
other outreach community programs.

Mental health is an essential part of physical health and satisfaction. However, many minority
communities suffer from mental health concerns, such as anxiety and also depression. Our outreach programs provides awareness education and connects community members and families with mental health resources in the local community to improve wellbeing.
This program address barriers to accessing both quality healthcare services and wellness promotion education, as well as provides resources to support the social and basic health needs of women in underserved communities. This program also offers educational workshops that provide health education and interactive discussions on disease prevention and management and the importance of annual health screenings.
Along the Journey: Cancer Awareness and Survivorship Support Program
Mental Health & Wellness Workshops
We seek to destigmatize mental health by increasing health literacy and helping individuals in minority communities understand that mental health is an essential part of well-being. These workshops help to connect community members and their families with mental health resources
and supportive services in the local community to improve wellbeing.
