CWUW is a wonderful and positive organization for the community. The ladies are intent on healing and helping to grow the Urban Woman via physical & mental health, which is very important in this day and age. From community walks to gardening to Life Jam, CWUW deserves to be recognized, celebrated and supported!!!! Their mission is LIFE, and there couldn't possibly be a better mission to have!

I work in the HIV/AIDS prevention field focusing on women. I think that it is important for all women to access the programs that are provided by CWUW so that they can not only lower their risk for HIV/AIDS but also take care of their overall health. It has been my experience that better health will cause a better life and that is exactly what I want for myself and my clients. As far as I am concerned, CWUW is the best place to get the tools to lead us to that better life.
