CALIFORNIA BLACK WOMEN’S HEALTH PROJECT, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established in 1994 as an affiliate of the Black Women’s Health Imperative (formerly National Black Women’s Health Project) based in Washington D.C. We seek to empower women to become active participants in improving their health status.
We are committed to advocating for policies and practices that promote and improve physical, spiritual, mental and emotional well-being of Black women and girls in California.
We believe a healthier future is possible when women are empowered to make choices in an environment where equal access and health justice are community priorities.
We provide in-home support two those in need. We assist with bathing, medication reminders, grooming, meal preparation, feeding assistance, companion care, Respite care, dementia care, light housekeeping, and errands. We tailor every package to meet the clients need.

Brinell Slocumb, PSY is a Clinical Psychologist in Pasadena, CA
For children, adolescents and adults
I am an eclectic therapist, meaning I do not subscribe to any one therapeutic modality as I believe the therapeutic process is fluid and as a clinician, I must be the same. I help you manage depression, anxiety, ADHD, adjustment disorder, grief/loss, PTSD, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, children and adolescents navigating the difficulties of adjusting to parent’s divorcing and behavioral issues such as oppositional defiance and conduct issues. In an effort to meet my clients where they are, I will take the time needed to examine, with you, the core issues surrounding the problem and assist in developing solutions from that ground work.
