CWUW IS A GREAT NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION AND IT IS A BLESSING THAT I WAS ABLE TO VOLUNTEER ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS FOR THIS GREAT ORGANIZATION. A GREAT GROUP OF PEOPLE MAKE CWUW A SUCCESS AND RHONDA BAYLESS IS A GODSEND. HER DEDICATION IS ONE TO LEARN FROM. CWUW DOES ANNUAL CLOTHING DRIVES, THEY HAVE BUILT A BEAUTIFUL COMMUNITY GARDEN, PROMOTE HEALTHY LIVING, RUN IN SCHOOL PROGRAMS AT IPS SCHOOLS, AND MUCH, MUCH MORE. EVERYONE LOOK CWUW UP AND SEE WHAT THEY HAVE TO OFFER!!

CWUW is an amazing organization, that is badly needed in our community. Helping women with their total health by embracing the 7 Dimensions of Wellness is a wonderful way of reaching, teaching and impacting. In the short time CWUW has been in existence, countless women have already been touched by the organization. This organization will continue to grow, and I forsee it becoming a critical component of the health community here in Indianapolis.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my time spent as a volunteer. The women who I have come to know and befriend in this organization are like family to me. And I have learned so much about my own health, as well as ways to help others.

I worked the LifeFit Health Kids Expo at the CWUW booth. It was a great experience teaching children about health and wellness. CWUW had each child complete a "health pledge" before receiving a gift from the table. They also had to give an example of how they will make the world a better place. CWUW's director even got up and did Zumba with the kids. Its a great organization!

CWUW since its inception has been on the move to create relationships and alliances with community organizations that have the same passion for empowering women and their families to be proactive about their health. From clothing drives, to health fairs, workshops and "sister walks", we embrace health and all that it has to offer. I have learned what a great resource we can be to people in need, that collaboration is necessary for change, and that our labor is NOT IN VAIN! We will keep pressing to make our mark in the community and in the lives of those in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing youth in our Girls to Women and 7 Dimensions programs have their "aha" moments. Also seeing the adult 7 Dimensions program facilitators complete great workshops in the community.

When I first starting walking in the Sisters Together Program, I thought I would have a hard time getting up on Saturday mornings to walk for an hour. Who wants to get up early on a Saturday after having had to get up early during the week for work. So, I got up anyway and started walking. I enjoy talking, sharing and connecting with women while I walk. I enjoy walking with this group of women. This is a good program. Sometimes its hard to do things like exercise by yourself, but with these other woman, I have been trying to make life long changes to my physical and emotional health.

I personally experienced the love and acceptance from the woman of the organization.

Fabulous experience all around. It was a wonderful opportunity to serve (and be served) but more important to be around like-minded positive women is a joy.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

start a revolution. Women all over the country and world would be inspired to take better care of themselves and would learn the importance of self-care. It is not a luxury, but one of those things that needs to be done.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About once a year
