Guiding Principles of The Community Wellness Project
1. Our role in the community is to bridge the gap between diverse cultural and racial minorities who are underserved and under-represented in the St. Louis and Illinois region.
2. That access to health and social services is critical to reducing the rates of health disparities in communities of color.
3. That health and social services should be provided in a culturally specific, linguistically appropriate and client centered manner.
4. That federal, state, local and community based agencies must work collaboratively to establish partnerships that provide a comprehensive system of health-related support services.
