Welcome!

Welcome to the website of Columbus Wellness. We are a non profit organization that specifically deal with and help those in rural areas. Columbus Wellness Center was established in 1989 to provide family planning services to low income women and blue collar working women in need of these services during non-traditional working hours. Our purpose and goals were to focus on women's health issues to include but were not limited to sexually transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS education, teen pregnancy prevention, breast disease, hypertension, menopause and family planning.

Our History

In 1993, Extended Sisters was the first support group organized to address the issues of African American women newly diagnosed with HIV. Locally, there was no support system in place; women were traveling 90 miles to Atlanta, for the support group at Ponce De Leon Infection Disease Clinic and those who were less fortunate with transportation were sent home to die. During this organizational period, individuals were inexperience, fearful, lack community support and traveled to SisterLove, Inc. and AIDS Atlanta for guidance. Volunteers utilized their own resources to make a difference. This support group, now known as the SISTAs Educational Group provides educational seminars, client assistance, and “friend girl” buddy program for women.

As the years endured the focus shifted to the entire family in promoting wellness. Building on our experience working in rural Georgia and Columbus Wellness Center Outreach and Prevention Project Center's history in teen pregnancy prevention in West Georgia Central Health District 7, we have established a network of innovative partnership with two rural agencies located in Marion and Randolph Counties. While our agencies are in various stages of their teen pregnancy prevention practices, they all exhibit strong evidence of fostering high levels of teen engagement, community outreach and moiling their community. Since 2010 The Swagga and Lace Initiative has delivered the evidence based curriculum B ecoming a R esponsible T een to teens in Marion, Muscogee and Randolph.
