The Green Peacock is the brainchild of founder Chaila Gilliams. In Chaila’s pursuit to improve the health of her community, social engagement, and networking with other nonprofits. In 2019 she organized The GREEN = (Good Health & Nutrition) PEACOCK = (Symbol of Black & Caribbean Culture). Witnessing a growing health crisis especially in underserved communities and coupled with the rise of COVID-19 related bereavements, it was evident that our programming needed to address not only the physical inactivity and poor diets leading to obesity but also the need to aid communities in coping with grief, stress, violence, low self-esteem, learning disabilities and the pressures of living in pandemic times. Through our facilitated health, fitness, mind and body wellness programs we have positively impacted over ten neighboring communities, 300 families, and over a dozen organizations to improve their health, create better nutrition habits, and empower, strengthen, and build character and self-esteem.
"“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”
― Maya Angelou
"We influence "Healthy Culture" that supports physical, social and emotional well-being."
Our mission is to Empower, Educate, Motivate and Engage youth, families, and community to create a culture of healthy lifestyles through quality physical fitness, social and emotional, and wellness activities. It is so easy to fall into a pattern of apathy as we go through our lives. Our organization was born out of a commitment to stop passing over the real issues of society, and deal with them head on. We have set out to aid those who need it most. The Green Peacock Corp is here to help, and we believe that change is possible when we put our hearts and minds to it.
