It brings me great pleasure to welcome you to the virtual home of the Northern Virginia (NoVA) Section of the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW). The members of the Section and I are delighted to share more about our non-profit organization with you.
We are proud of our extraordinary legacy. NCNW was founded by forward-thinking Mary McLeod Bethune (1875-1955) in 1935, as an “organization of organizations” to represent national and international concerns of Black women.
Having served the Northern Virginia area for more than 40 years, the NoVA Section leads the way through volunteer efforts, to positively impact the lives of families in our community. Through our monthly projects, we strive to fill the gap of those in need and promote education, health, economic empowerment and cultural initiatives.
Learn more about what we do on this website and please consider becoming a member or supporter. We need help providing greater service to our community.
Should you have any questions or require further information, please feel free to contact us.
Helene L. Fisher
President, NoVA Section of NCNW
