The Women's Building is important because it serves the community directly with: job search assistance, providing food, tax and legal advice, affordable event space, and offers resources and referrals for everything from shelters to childcare. It provides women with an opportunity to become leaders in their communities by offering the necessary tools and resources. it also serves as a historical landmark that attracts people from all over to see its beautiful mural. I'm proud to serve as a board member for this amazing organization.

I'm honored to be a board member at this important and historically significant organization. The Women's Building is known for its incredibly beautiful structure and location in the Mission District. I invite anyone and everyone: women, men, children, families, and individuals of any economic or racial background to step inside The Women's Building. From tax prep and legal assistance to food to yoga and dance classes to artist's events to rental space, there is something for everyone in a safe, gorgeous, and welcoming environment.

The Women's Building is a vital component of the Mission neighborhood and beyond. It serves the needs of many people by providing basic training and resources. The staff is dedicated to making sure every man, woman and child has the tools they need to be successful at home and in the workplace. The Building is also a beautiful landmark reminding us of the neighborhood's legacy and inspiring hope for the future.

Hey, the SF Women's Centers provide a really good umbrella org and space for a whole bunch of efforts that help people. I'm particularly interested in and supportive of their community computer lab, which helps people connect to find their own voice, and to get everyday stuff done, like finding a job.

The folks at The Women's Building are doing great work to help out women and girls in need. It's a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multi-service center for women and girls in the Mission district in SF.

The Great!

I've heard really great first-hand accounts of the good work being done from folks on my team who have toured the Building, met with the staff and community using their services.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them spread the word about the wonderful and needed services they offer to the community. Such as food bank distribution, computer skills classes and a community center that is really a great place for folks to come together, learn from each other and give each other a break.

The women's building offers so many different services for the women of our community! They offer everything such as lawyer services, help with tax preparation, healing workshops, fitness classes, case management for many different things such as sexual assault, housing, free peer counseling, etc.

There is always something going on and a great place to find resources about happenings in the community. There are plenty of resources for great yoga classes, healing workshops, lectures, forums, and much much more.

Every person I have had the pleasure of meeting has been genuine and helpful. The place exudes empowerment and love. I'm feel privileged to be associated with them and thank them for many of the resources I have used in the past.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own life. San Francisco Women Against Rape is located here and I've grown personally and professionally through the work we have done in our community and the training we have received.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have more funding for them to help more people in the community.

I felt at home in the Women's Building, from the moment I walked in to be trained as a volunteer for SFWAR many years ago. I still love being there -- the building is vibrant with activities and happenings. I so appreciate that there is a place for a community supporting women and girls. I always find all the people there to be committed, caring, and kind -- even as they attend to their many endeavors. I feel grateful to be part of it all. SFWAR, the group I volunteer for, does an outstanding job of being a support network and service for victims of sexual abuse. It would be devastating if this organization did not exist and it would be a huge loss if the Women's Building did not exist. The Women's Building is a unique contribution to the life of San Francisco and the Bay area.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen the difference it makes in the lives of so many women by there being a voice and a presence for women seeking support from sexual assault or the ensuing long-term trauma that so often follows sexual assault. The staff of SFWAR and its many volunteers are a dedicated group.

If I had to make changes, I would figure out a way to raise additional funds so there could be more staff for the services SFWAR provides and so that the staff could be paid more. The staff is awesome.

The Women's building is a great resource for several underrepresented communities in San Francisco. It is also the home to several organizations such as SFWAR who work tirelessly to better the lives of women and minorities. It provides a safe space for various events, such as meditation classes, self-defence classes to be organized at low costs.

I have found the Women's Building to be a priceless gift to my healing and relationships due to the thoughtful and hardworking staff and board members. I've been able to volunteer there for a short time and was able to feel the rewards of being a part of something so valuable!

In the way I experience the world. Sometimes it takes a group of people so sensitive and special to reinforce the knowledge that there is pure, bold goodness in life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage another Women's Building closer to me (in Marin County) so it's easier for me to get there.

I feel so blessed to have access to something like this Women's Building. I can't believe how amazing the concept is, and all the work that goes into providing resources for the community. I have performed various times at this site, and also received services, I have sought the resources of the various organizations housed there and been able to facilitate my work with youth at the Women's Building. The mural around the building brings life to the neighborhood and makes me happy to walk in there!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Use of meeting spaces, dance classes and information.

Have more branches of this place in different neighborhoods!
