Sista Afya Community Care General Fund Fund
About This Fund
Sista Afya Community Mental Wellness' vision is for Black women across the African Diaspora to be free from psychological and physical illness through supporting one another and engaging in accessible mental wellness care that centers on the well-being of the whole person.
Sista Afya is a social enterprise that provides low-cost mental wellness services that center the experiences of Black women. We have a community support approach to mental wellness. We believe that community support for people living with mental health conditions can foster healing, growth, freedom, and self-actualization.
