2018 Culture Keeping At The TIM Center

HAPPY 2018!!!

This year we did a lot at The TIM Center. Our goal was to present our body of work and our purpose to the community in a way that they could understand. Our vision is clear. To serve the underserved and under informed childbearing community– beginning with the African American/Black population.

We chose to use various ways to express our concern professionally and socially to the community. Out of all the work we put into 2017– our overall impact was sound and well received. For this we are thankful. 

This year we strive to expand our holistic approach in such a way that the community learns the value of culturally centered perinatal wellness.

Our vision is simple. Teach the community how to catch more than babies… But teach them how to thrive in doing so. Beginning with their living environment, their eductuain, their employment, their economy, and their empowerment.

As much as we would like to see everyone in the community utilizing our support services, we are aware that many will choose otherwise.

Our health promotion campaign is designed to support self-direction to childbearing families through the perinatal period.

How can we help you and your family become engaged and empowered through holistic self-care and overall wellness in 2018?

Can Community Centered Health Care Save Black Women From Loosing Out Under the GOP Health Plan

In this article we will see how detrimental the GOP Health Plan is to Black Women’s Health. We believe that it will cause more disparities for the Black population than many are prepared for. Our plan for Community Centered Health Care can be an easy solution. 

After accounting for amendments to the American Health Care Act (AHCA) currently being considered by the U.S. House of Representatives, the latest estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that the GOP’s plan still would increase the number of uninsured people in the country to 24 million by 2026.

Even before CBO released its initial report, health policy experts and pundits across the board were warning that more people will be left without insurance than ever before under the GOP’s health bill.

“To be okay with 24 million people not having access to the care they need amounts to nothing more than a blatant disregard for the lives of Americans,” said the Black Women’s Health Imperative, a D.C.-based advocacy organization, in a recent email. “By moving forward with this repeal legislation, Congress is sending a message to the American people that their health is secondary to savings in the federal budget.”
