Its mission is to provide reliable and accessible primary health care and social services for diverse populations, to promote wellness and to eliminate health and social disparities.

W4W is committed to advancing innovative ways to address and resolve issues related to women and children's health.
“I’m honored to be receiving this award from the Whittier Street Health Center,” said Ms. Daccord. “This organization, and in particular the Women for Whittier initiative, is making a real and lasting difference in the lives of so many women and children.”
The focus of this year’s holiday tea will be on Resiliency: Healthy Living for Women and Girls.
