Well Community Project Grants $180,000 to Community Organizations in Mississippi, Michigan, and Louisiana to Promote Wellness
Date:7/10/2013

Alexandria, Va. (PRWEB) July 10, 2013

The Well Community Project today announced that three community partner organizations will receive grants to build capacity around community wellness and resilience, thus creating environments where children and their families thrive. The three selected grantee sites: City of Indianola, Miss.; the Institute of Women & Ethnic Studies, New Orleans, La.; and the Urban Neighborhood Initiative, Detroit, Mich., will each receive $60,000 to engage in planning and communicating activities over a 17 month period (August 2013–December 2014). The goal of the grants is to reflect the role that wellness and resilience play in the community’s health and quality of life.

“By engaging community leaders we can redefine health and foster a culture of wellness and resilience in communities across the nation,” said Samueli Institute President and CEO Wayne B. Jonas, M.D., “Ultimately, we expect this work to inform national public health policy by building support for activities outside the traditional, clinically-oriented prevention approaches.”

City of Indianola, Miss. - Founded in 1882 in the heart of the Mississippi Delta region, the city of Indianola has a rich history of overcoming decades of racial and economic divide, evolving into a close knit community dedicated to bringing together residents of different races, economic statuses, faiths, and backgrounds to create a unified approach to improving health and wellness in their neighborhoods.

Institute of Women and Ethnic Studies (IWES) - A national non-profit, community-based organization headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana, founded in 1993 in response to overwhelming health disparities among women of color. IWES is dedicated to improving the physical, mental, and spiritual health and quality of life for women of color and their families, especially those who are socio-economically disadvantaged.
