HEY, Sister Inc. was founded in 2017 by Regena Hammock after being diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer.  Being a woman, a black woman in America, she has observed and experienced both disparities and inequalities in various life encounters. A God-given vision created in her a heartfelt desire to devote to the dire need for the social welfare of African-American women, children, and seniors. 

We know that our strength not only lies in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. 
HEY, Sister realizes that by women working together, we can overcome our challenges much more effectively. The launch of HEY, Sister gives us a platform to advance change.
