Message from the President:
It is my pleasure to extend a cordial welcome to our website.
We are delighted that you have chosen to learn more about the Northern Virginia (NoVA) Section of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW), a non-profit organization. The NoVA Section is enthusiastically inspired to provide meaningful services to families and organizations within our local communities through the mission and legacy of our founder, Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune.
The organization’s method is to translate its philosophy of public education, community service and advocacy into activities such as promoting healthy lifestyles through wellness projects, long-term health care planning, training, and supporting women, youth, and families to build on strengths, traditional values, career development, and community leadership.
There is still much to be done, especially in these challenging times. As you read more “About Us” on this website pertaining to our mission, accomplishments, plans and goals, I hope that you too will feel the excitement of joining us by becoming a member or supporter of the NoVA Section of NCNW. What a great way to “giveback” and receive that personal sense of pride just by sharing your skills, experiences, and successes!
As president of the NoVA Section of NCNW and on behalf of the members, we hope to hear from you soon. Should you have any questions or require further information, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you for your interest.
Sharon Goode, President
