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!

Review from Guidestar

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.

The Great!
