With support from the Simon Bolivar Foundation, Casa seeks to spend the next year creating a Youth LeadershipHealth Model that is rooted in self-healing & organizing focusing on young women /organizer/activist self empowerment, leadership development and personal & organizational health. This summer we will be developing
a young women’s South Bronx “Leadership Council”
The South Bronx is the UNHEALTHIEST of New York's 62 counties. It is plagued with poverty, dis-ease,unemployment , addiction and violence against women in all its forms impacting the mind, body and spirit of young women at an increasing rate. 37% of South Bronx residents say that they have lacked money to buy food at
some point in the past 12 months. Most recently, the movie “Precious” depicting young women reality through the
life story of a young black woman whose social conditions (ie. poverty) contributed to rape and incest that sheexperienced at home, which as a consequence led to obesity , low self esteem, teen pregnancy, illiteracy, sexuallytransmitted diseases, and an intergenerational cycle of abuse within the womyn in her family. We believe that Casacan give young women the tools they can use for mental, emotional, spiritual and physical wellness to deal withissues such as self mutilation, low self image, drugs, eating disorders, teen pregnancy, suicide, unsafe sex andunhealthy relationships, all leading to mental stress &emotional damage that often gets carried into their adult lifeaffecting their reproductive health and overall health and wellness.
