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.

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.

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

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.

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!
