CCM Foundation - Health & Wellness

Mission Statement

In 2006 the CCM Foundation was created to use the arts and education to empower youth and young adults to make healthy lifestyle decisions that will reduce health disparities among underserved populations.

YOUTH/COMMUNITY OUTREACH

  • Clutch City Art Project - This initiative engages middle school students from HISD to create artwork centered around a chosen theme, with "World AIDS Day" being the current focus.

  • CHAD "PIMP C" BUTLER HEALTH & WELLNESS FESTIVAL - Since its inception, this event has held significant importance, aiming to extend the legacy of the iconic Texas Rapper Chad "Pimp C" Butler. Spearheaded by CCM and UGQ, founded by Chinara Butler, Pimp C's widow, this collaboration has elevated the legend to new heights. The event serves as a platform for HIV/STD awareness, testing, and addressing various health disorders, including sleep apnea, which played a role in Chad's untimely demise. Initially held in Chad Butler's hometown of Port Arthur, the inaugural event transitioned to Houston the following year to reach a broader community audience.  Learn More
  • WELL WOMAN EXTRAVAGANZA - The collaboration between the CCM Foundation, Swishablast LLC, and the University of Houston Collegiate Cancer Council (UHCCC) brings forth the Well-Woman Extravaganza, a unique event dedicated to combating breast and cervical cancer spread while emphasizing the importance of regular women's exams for early cancer detection. Alongside the primary focus on cancer awareness, as customary with CCM events, there will be a significant emphasis on HIV/STD awareness. Every October, we invite you to join us at the University of Houston Main Campus, where we unite to raise awareness among Houston's women communities. This event not only amplifies the cancer awareness initiatives of the UHCCC but also supports advancements in cervical cancer research. Learn More
  • SWISHAHOUSE WORLD AIDS DAY - World AIDS Day, observed December 1 each year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. It is common to hold memorials to honor persons who have died from HIV/AIDS on this day. Government and health officials also observe the event, often with speeches or forums on AIDS topics. Since 1995, the President of the United States has officially proclaimed World AIDS Day. Governments of other nations have followed suit and issued similar announcements. Learn More
