Back To School Supply Drive

  • Many families are struggling with unemployment and more than 30 million students are enrolled in the free and reduced meal programs. Many parents are unable to provide the basic school supplies their children need to be effective. 
  • How do we help? We collect and donate school supplies to children in elementary and middle school. The donations offer students the opportunity to have all the necessary tools to succeed and attend the new  school year with no limitations.

February is Heart Health Month

  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. The good news? It is also one of the most preventable. 
  • Making heart-healthy choices, knowing your family health history and the risk factors for heart disease, having regular check-ups and working with your physician to manage your health are all integral aspects of saving lives from this often silent killer.  
  • Make a difference in your community by spreading the word about strategies for preventing heart disease and encouraging those around you to have their hearts check and commit to heart-healthy lives. 
  • How can YOU make a difference during Heart Health Month? Wear red on National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 3rd to increase awareness of heart disease. Then share a photo of you and your friends in your best red gear on social media with the hashtag #theheartfoundation.
  • Educate yourself and donate to The Heart Foundation and help support heart research.

Domestic Violence Awareness

  • We can all take steps to stop domestic violence. If you or a loved one is trying to leave an abusive relationship, it's important to remember the person who is hurting you or your loved one is the person who needs to change. However, your abuser may be unable or unwilling change.The only way to permanently stop domestic violence is for everyone to no longer try to control and abuse those they love. 
  • This goal will take educating our kids to respect their romantic partners by demonstrating respectful, healthy relationships with our spouses and partners. 
  • The National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) is the voice of victims and survivors. We are the catalyst for changing society to have zero tolerance for domestic violence. We do this by affecting public policy, increasing understanding of the impact of domestic violence, and providing programs and education that drive that change. 

Teens Overcoming Pressures (T.O.P. Program)

  • Teens Overcoming Pressure (TOP) is a program that aims to teach teenagers how to identify healthy versus unhealthy relationships, in addition to  early warning signs of abusive relationships, violent markers, and controlling and manipulative behavior.
  • Through this program it is our goal to promote healthy relationships by guiding our youth through positive self-image, effective mannerisms, positive behaviors and self-motivation.
  • Teenage life...the most exciting, challenging, dramatic and perplexing phase of our life. Teenage is the life changing phase of a teen's life. It's like a second birth, a teen drastically changes both emotionally and physically. This phase of life creates a new era of life pressures.
  • peer pressure
  • parents pressure
  • popularity pressure
  • weight pressure
  • skin pressure
  • future pressure
  • bullying pressure

Annual Programs & Events (Continued)

Reading for Life

  • The NHBW literacy initiative is a grassroots movement established to help raise reading levels for students across the country.  The goal is to attack the systemic reading epidemic.  The plan is to not only be a resource for grade school students but for children in daycares/nursery schools as well.
  • Our mission is to provide the tools and resources to combat this epidemic at the ground level.  WE plan to put a book in every home and support parents as the child’s first and most important teacher. 
  • We plan to increase literacy and promote a child’s successful transition into the educational school system through outreach and awareness to parents about the importance of reading readiness for children birth through 5 years of age.
  •  The goal is to increase the percentage of students reading by the time they enter kindergarten and establish a literacy based resource center for both daycares/nurseries and grade schools.  Educational support systems are the key to keeping children in school, in the work force, off welfare, and away from criminal activities. 

African American Read-In

  • What Is a Read-In? During the month of February, schools, churches, libraries, bookstores, community, professional organizations and interested citizens are urged to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month by hosting an African American Read-In. Hosting an event can be as simple as bringing together friends to share a book or as elaborate as arranging public readings and media presentations that feature professional African American writers. 
  •  “The African American Read-In (AARI) is built on an ambitious yet confident premise: that a school and community reading event can be an effective way to promote diversity in children’s literature, encourage young people to read, and shine a spotlight on African American authors.” 
  •  The National African American Read-In is the nation’s first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. It was established in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month. This initiative has reached more than 5.9 million participants around the world. 

Children's Reading Rooms

  • We need children book donations for our community Children Reading Rooms.
  • The Reading Room project is a national initiative for all NHBW, Inc. chapters across the USA. 
  • The purpose of the project is to create a literacy enriched environment for children to develop their reading skills. The reading project is dedicated to promoting leisure reading as a key to unlocking a child’s full potential. 
  • We can meet and exceed our goals for building more reading room by creating partnerships with targeted daycare centers and targeted grade schools to bridge the education gap and help children reach their full potential.
  • Providing workshops for program participants to pursue academic excellence.
  • Hosting workshops for parents and early childhood instructors to reinforce the importance of early (birth to 5) instruction in reading.
  • Distributing reading materials and resources for youth and parents.
  • Develop a support and resource system for use by parents, educators, and caregivers.
