About the organization

Kind Minds Family Wellness (KMFW) comprises of a group of Black professionals who in over 15 years have been engaged in trauma-informed work with individuals, families, and groups in various community settings. 


We have realized that the majority of Black social service users often struggle and feel overwhelmed. For the majority of Black persons, inter-generational trauma evolving from colonialism, slavery, segregation, and persistent discrimination has led to the distrust of health care and social service system. Our mission is to transform the narratives of Black individuals, and support and empower them as they navigate systems in order to attain positive self-actualization and holistic wellness.

Impact

You will be helping us foster a community that supports Black empowerment and community services navigation, as well as one that  guides the design and delivery of culturally suitable educational programs.
