In addition to our health services, the organization offers comprehensive risk reduction/leadership programs targeted towards female youth through the Leadership and Empowerment Institute for Girls and Young Women (LEI). Housed within LEI is the youth development program Girls on the Rise.

Center for Community Health & Well-Being, Inc. (CCHWB) is more than your everyday non-profit. Although there are many organizations in the community that offer healthcare and social support services, the thing that truly sets us apart is the personal connection we establish with every individual who walks through our doors. Through our Black Mothers United program our Personal Advocates are building nurturing relationships with pregnant African American women, helping them ensure their babies are born as healthy as possible. In addition, CCHWB is a subcontractor of Safe Sleep Baby which provides pregnant mothers with recommendations for infant safe sleep, statistics on infant sleep related deaths, and gives free Pack N Play's to those in greatest need. Lastly, our Girls on the Rise program encourages high school-aged women of color to become champions for both their communities and themselves.
