Corazón y Carácter Mission Statement

Founded in 2015 Corazón y Carácter is a destination to provide education and services to the communities aligned with our values. The source of our group was inspired by trustworthy individuals, supporting our communities and creating meaningful relationships with other groups.

Corazón y Carácter is a group of women providing training and instruction in public health sectors to individuals and families in low income communities. We empower people and build their self-esteem by developing, educating, and raising awareness in areas such as:

  • Sex education
  • Gay and lesbian mindfulness
  • Youth advocacy
  • Alcohol and drug prevention
  • Depression
  • Domestic violence
  • Child abuse

  • Nutrition
  • Obesity
  • Mental health
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STD’s)/Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
  • HIV
  • Sexual assault

Our organization was founded in 1998 when members started venturing and offering their knowledge, skill base, and instructional presentations at schools, churches, community centers, and conferences. We felt that in order to develop and build stronger communities we had to start by training individuals and families. We prepared information, instructed people, raised awareness, but most importantly we empowered ourselves and individuals by restoring self-esteem.
In essence….. The sisterhood has your back!!!
