Founded in 1988, the Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter of 100 Black Women is the third largest chapter of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc. whose mission is to serve as an advocacy organization for women and children of color.
With strong corporate and community ties, our chapter is dedicated to delivering quality programs and services with emphasis on the following areas:
Teen Mentoring - The "Teens on the Move" Program assists young women in reaching their full potential through self-esteem enhancing activities including tutoring, supplemental education and behavioral support workshops.
Education - The Coalition's growing scholarship program provides financial assistance to deserving students who want to further their education at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
Health - The Coalition conducts community health fairs, promotes health screenings and distributes materials to the public. The goal is to raise awareness about illnesses that disproportionately affect the African-American community.
Economic Empowerment - Through its Adopt-A-Shelter Program, the Coalition supports African-American women at the Achor Center, which provides a stable home environment for homeless women, often with children, who are in transition.
Standing strong with over 100 members, the Metropolitan Atlanta Chapter is comprised of African American women who understand the power of collaboration and the need for a commitment to service in order to make a real a difference in the Atlanta community. We are passionate about our mission to touch the lives and hearts of those we serve.
The National Coalition of 100 Black Women is an advocacy organization built to empower African- American women through greater access to education, political strength, business opportunities and civic responsibility.
Each member embraces the value of nurturing young women as they look toward brighter futures.The Coalition is committed to seeking solutions to critical issues in our community, and offers programs and services to enhance the self-sufficiency of African-American women.
