DCHA Establishes Partnership with Black Girl Health (District of Columbia Housing Authority)

Date Published:

From the District of Columbia Housing Authority's press release:

The District of Columbia Housing Authority entered into a partnership with Black Girl Health, a nationally known organization that works with companies, government entities and more to integrate strategic health programming in rural and urban communities, to offer physical and mental health wellness workshops on September 10.

Black Girl Health (BGH) will take over DCHA’s Facebook and YouTube accounts to stream three workshops focusing on managing anxiety and depression, nutrition for mental wellness, and healing yoga practices. This is the third health partnership DCHA has enacted using CARES Act funding.

“As our customers in DCHA communities and throughout the District are practicing social distancing, staying inside, and following the rules of the mayor’s state of emergency, we thought it is of utmost importance to utilize technology to offer support of mental and physical wellness programing during this time,” said DCHA Executive Director Tyrone Garrett. “I encourage all of our families and individual customers—and District residents—to tune in on September 10 to learn how to deal with today’s stressors.”

BGH is an 8a certified woman-owned digital outreach and marketing company that helps improve the health of people of color and reduce health disparities in communities with the highest health risks. BGH focuses its efforts by helping people make informed decisions about their health through its membership and partnering with other companies/organizations to do digital awareness campaigns and virtual and in-person events.
