HBC’s organization is structured into four divisions (Centers):

You can learn more about each below or by clicking on the name of the Center. 

Black Family Wellness


The Center for Black Family Wellness focuses on developing programs and services responsive to health disparities within the Black community. Wellness is a term CEO Evans adopted to expand the approach to addressing health disparities to be inclusive of ten essential parts of the human being experience: intellectual, physical, mental, spiritual, sexual, educational, emotional, political, financial and social. The primary focus is to develop programs separately and collectively that approach building and improving the Black Family infrastructure, not from an American “family” model, but African centered model that includes neighbors, community organizations and members, faith based institutions, etc. 

Black Same Gender Loving Development


The Center for Black Same Gender Loving Development focuses on developing programs and services responsive to mobilizing and improving the quality of life for Black same gender loving people. SGL is a cultural term that affirms the same sex attraction between men and women, created in the early to mid 90’s. The primary focus is to work within the Black SGL community, giving infrastructure and capacity building assistance to individuals, organizations and businesses that focus on providing a product or service that enhances the SGL Black experience. 

International Excellence


The Center for International Excellence focuses on partnering with organizations outside the United States to share program initiatives or proven concepts/strategies that will improve the quality of life for developing countries or marginalized communities. International Excellence is HBC’s approach at making sure international non-governmental organizations are mentored and supported in developing their infrastructure in a way that is responsive to the needs of their targeted communities. The primary focus is to share what we know utilizing Pablo Friere’s community development model to improve the life of global community members.

Organization & Technology Development


The Center for Organization & Technology Development focuses on developing organizational and technological infrastructures to assist in building programmatic and structural capacities for programs and services to operate effectively in response to the needs of communities. In addition, the role of technology permeates the lives of individuals as well as organizations, we feel it is our responsibility to provide programs and services that assist in bridging the digital divide already in existence within Black communities, domestically and internationally.
