Mission Statement

Words Heal, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to increase the number of literary works which reflect the experiences of people of color, people of faith, the aged and the differently-abled. Our purpose is to promote the use of literature to improve mental and physiological health outcomes, as a complement to traditional therapies and treatments (bibliotherapy).

Description

Words Heal, Inc. will be the leader in providing recommendations and research to support the use of literature by underrepresented people to cope with life’s struggles. We will use our diverse corps of staff and volunteers to reach mental health and health practitioners, public libraries and the general public to increase the use of bibiliotherapy. Our work will help those who contribute most to the health of our society understand the power of words to heal.

We welcome "quickstarters with a positive attitude". We are always looking for board members and volunteers with diverse backgrounds and interests. We are especially excited to welcome people with experience working with our target populations:

  • Minorities
  • Elderly Persons
  • Faith Communities
  • Individuals with Special Needs or Exceptional Abilities
