Laura S. Gilliams was the first African American School Nurse in the New Haven Public School District; Trustee of Community Baptist Church; Member (Delta Dear) of Delta Sigma Theta, Sorority ,Inc, Distinguished Past Grand Worthy Matron of Eureka Chapter Order of the Eastern Star, and member of The Black Nurses Association of CT.
Laura Gilliams believed that a strong support system informed by uplifting socializations and connection was central to one's physical wellness. She engaged in organizations, causes and alliances aimed at effecting positive change in Newhallville and beyond, believing that the vitality of the community required sustained attention to every member's physical, emotional, intellectual, mental and spiritual well-being.
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.
Our strength is amplified with collective action, and you can help make a difference with The Green Peacock Corp. today! The support we receive is a huge driver of the good work we do in addressing some of society’s most challenging problems.
