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!

CWUW is an organization primarily geared towards the health, wellness & well-being of women, but as a man, I can say that their reach is definitely beyond that target market. We all can agree that the health of a community's women spills over into the family and friends that she loves. The CWUW programs that I have attended and participated in are wonderful examples of that positive overflow. Community clothing swaps, concerts, workshops and gardening events not only build the communities that CWUW serves, but also plants a seed in attendees to also find THEIR place in this world to also make a difference.

Nonprofits struggle for dollars these days, and I feel confidant giving mine to CWUW. Ms. Bayless is in tune with the needs of the communities she serves and is continually finding ways to better serve, inform, educate and reach those communities. Honest, holistic and empowering: all apt descriptors of CWUW.
