Why We Do What We Do

Our Community Wellness Center is situated at the heart of the under-resourced community on the west side of Birmingham, Alabama, where the social and economic disparities lead to a lack of resources, education, and hope.

These Communities Are Plagued By

  • Poor Nutrition

    Poor nutritional habits are prevalent in our community because there’s a lack of nutritious foods, a fast-paced lifestyle, and nutrition deficient food preparation. According to studies, only 19.6% of all adults consume the right amount of fruits and vegetables recommended daily.

  • Stress

    A stressful lifestyle is caused by an under-nourished and overworked body, resulting in chronic illnesses that negatively impact wellness.

  • Chronic Illness

    Many individuals come to us seeking support for chronic illnesses that are caused by inadequate diets and stress. With limited healthcare services and limited care from the medical system, our community appreciates the efforts and advice from our Wellness Advocates for leading a healthier lifestyle.

  • Education

    We have a rigorous education program that teaches others how to empower themselves in their health journey by making healthier food choices and taste-testing. We offer Community Health training classes, recipe handouts and host healthy cooking classes.

  • Experiential Events

    We provide our under-resourced community with tools and resources such as workshops and events to help them make better choices for themselves and their loved ones. We can host wellness workshops at business sites and develop “Nourishing Wellness Groups” to serve as coaching circles.
