The Women's Building is an incredible resource for women and girls in San Francisco. The staff and volunteers here are amazing and powerful women committed to improving the community. The Resource Center at the Women's Building offers caring and kind volunteers providing job search assistance, free tax preparation, a food bank program, and an unlimited set of referrals to other services in San Francisco.

I have attended some classes at the Women's Building as well as doing some volunteer work on occasion and donating money when I can. The work that is done there is so valuable to women from all walks of life. We, in San Francisco, are blessed to have such an organization in our community with so many dedicated people working to improve the lives of women, children and families in San Francisco.

The Women's Building makes a difference in the lives of women and girls in San Francisco in so many ways. You can get job search help, or tax preparation, or even legal help in the Resource Center. The build ing offers space to rent for events, conferences, and parties. There are also 11 other non profits who call the beautiful 4 story building home.
Come visit and take a yoga class, get help or just enjoy our beautiful
murial.

I attended a self-defense class a while back at the Women's Building. It was such a wonderful and inclusive space! I appreciated that there were women in support of each other, and that it was free to all.

the Women's Building is a powerful resource for everyone in the Bay Area! They provide office space for social change and support organizations (like SFWAR and The Riley Center), they offer legal, exercise and wellness and other workshops that are free or very low cost, and provide centralized meeting spaces that are affordable. I am grateful every time I get to go to the Women's Building, and not just because of the gorgeous murals that adorn the walls, both outside and in -- but also because every time I walk through the front doors I know I'm part of a network of support, change, and care for the community. The Women's Building is a vital resource for all people in the Bay Area - women, children, men and those who prefer other gender possibilities.

The Great!

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

a sense of pride and gratitude anytime I even see the building -- somehow, the murals feel like they are a necessary part of my San Francisco! I've witnessed the powerful engagement of multiple communities when I attend events at the Women's Building -- maybe there's a literary event or reading on one floor, a local Latina/o community organizing event on another, a crisis volunteer training going on: there's a sense that we all belong here, all of our work matters and is necessary to one another!

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

Find a way to provide them with more funds, so that they can continue to make improvements around the building, offer more workshops and classes, and continue their vital work!

The Women's Building's commitment to community is evidenced in the day-to-day work and support it provides to those in need. Seeing first-hand what this organization accomplishes for women, girls and low-income families has deepened my belief in the power of a small group of people to create social good on a much larger scale. The programs and services they offer change lives, inside and out.

The Great!

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

living more closely in connection with the experience of those who are challenged every day to get by and succeed. TWB makes it possible for so many people to survive and grow.

Do more to help their fund development efforts and create an endowment for sustainability.

The Women's Building is one of the reasons I live in San Francisco. It is a phenomenal organization, which provides much-needed services to a huge swath of the public, especially those who are most often under-served. Many of the services they provide are only available at the Women's Building, and are critical to the advancement of women. They provide everything from legal consultations, to food donations for immigrants, to free yoga classes for those who often can't afford such crucial services, and so much more. This is an amazing group of people doing some of the city's best work. To many, they are the heart of the Mission, and the face of the neighborhood.

Getting involved with The Women's Building changed my life. I found a community of people who believed in me, and supported me to succeed. I've seen the same thing happen for many other women, whether they came into the drop-in Community Resource Room looking for help, joined a project as a volunteer, or came into the building to connect with one of the other kick-a** organizations housed there.

The Great!

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

witnessing women come in seeking something (help preparing a tax return, healthy food for their families, a greater connection to the community they live in) to find real results (a tax refund greater than expected, healthy food plus English classes or job search assistance, meaningful opportunities to learn and grow).

Ways to make it better...

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

join the board! (I did). Make a donation! (I do). Show up at events! (yes!). See you there!
