During the 10 years I have been volunteering at the Women's Center I have met many wonderful people that I count as friends and have learned a lot about the programs that are available to help people through difficult times. I look forward to going to the Women's Center each week and feel that I have gained as much in my own life as I have given in service. It is a wonderful, caring place that really lives up to the ideals of service and helping others.

As a board member, I experience the extreme dedication of individuals (staff, volunteers, board members, interns, donors) associated with the Women's Center. This dedication results from a tremendous sense of assisting the women and girls we serve in accomplishing important changes in their lives. In addition, individuals also really enjoy their involvement and interaction with the Women's Center's like-minded, compassionate community. As the lead of the board's strategic planning committee, I am proud of our history and our plans for the future.

I recently joined the Women's Center as a member of the Finance Committee and as Chair of the Steering Committee for our May fundraising event. I also just became a Board member. I have a strong background with non-profits in both consulting and board roles, and am very impressed by the Women's Center. The quality of the programs and the people is very high and very professional. The environment is very welcoming and serves our clients' needs well. We also play an important educational role with interns.

I'm unsure of what to call myself at this organization, but I think volunteer best describes it. I have been volunteering here since January, and I can say from first-hand experience that this organization is really here to change people's lives for the better. Not only do we provide personal counseling, we also empower women by finding them resources as well as building skills in them to advocate for themselves. This organization really is one in a million and if you can volunteer, work, or even spend a minute at the Center, you will find that you too can make a difference in the lives of countless women.

I served on the board 2004-2010, as chair for the first three years, and continue as a volunteer, most recently as a co-chair for the Power of One event celebrating Jean Ledwith King. The Women's Center is unique and essential to our community, providing a safety net of comprehensive critical services under one roof and making them affordable. No one is turned away. The Center's work consists not only in providing human services, but more importantly in implementing a vision of social justice in terms of gender and socio-economic class. In spite of the current economy, the Center continues to deliver high quality services because, in part, it draws in professionals who volunteer their skills and time, which have a dollar value of 1.5 times the annual operating budget. In addition to direct programs and services, the Center has created a General Resources document in order to provide accurate responses to callers (3000 annually) needing critical information about food, shelter, medical care, etc. As a result the Center has become the go-to organization for other organizations that need to know how and where to refer their own callers and clients. The Center is unique and essential in our community in addressing the emotional and financial challenges of women who have nowhere else to go.

I was involved in helping to paint and move the Women's Center to its new location. It was by far the most fun and rewarding experience I have ever had. Not only was everyone so great and helpful but they acknowledged your hard work. It is always great to be appreciated especially when you are moving large and heavy things.

I just attended a gala event sponsored by the Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan. The event was part of their Power of One series and it honored Jean Ledwith King, an amazing women whose name will now be associated with the center. It was a wonderful, powerful evening and I was very impressed with the organization, dedication and commitment of the members of this group. I would not hesitate to donate to the women's center because of all of the services they provide to women, children and families of Michigan. During these tough economic times, the women's center is essential and it deserves the support of the community.

As a nonprofit consultant I work with many organizations, and The Jean Ledwith King Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan is as good as they come. JLKWC has a strategic vision of where it wants to be and the staff and operational volunteers to see it through to fruition. Its commitment to mission and ongoing review of everything it does to avoid "mission-drift" is noteworthy.

The Great!

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

Watching everyone who gets involved with the Center become a passionate advocate on its behalf.

Help them raise more money so they could hire additional staff which would enable them to do even more!

I am honored to be the Board Chair of The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan. TWC provides its services on a sliding scale fee structure, and no one is turned away due to an inability to pay. It is a vital community resource that is not a nonprofit luxury -- it is a community necessity. Along with our professional staff and cadre of volunteers, the Board of Directors is doing everything possible to ensure the long term sustainability of TWC so that it remains part of our community landscape for years to come. Everything we do at TWC is guided by three fundamental principles: increase confidence, increased competence, and increased connections. These principles are my constant motivation in my work with our Board of Directors, staff and volunteers. One of the things that makes me most proud of TWC is the efficiency with which TWC raises the funds necessary to keep its doors open for clients. There is no unncessary "overhead" -- there is space where our staff and volunteers serve clients directly and there are minimal staff salaries to deliver the services to clients. When an individual makes a donation or a funder makes a grant to TWC, they can be confident that those funds are used efficiently to make a difference in the lives of clients. I am grateful beyond words for the staff, interns, volunteers and my board colleagues who give so much of themselves in order to make the work of the Center possible.

The Great!

I've been involved with The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan (TWC) for several years. My involvement and commitment has deepened the more that I learned about it and the work it does in our community. TWC helps women and families through affordable counseling, financial, legal, and job-related services. Its doors are open to individuals who want to change their lives emotionally, professionally, and financially. I continue to be impressed with TWC's responsibility and responsiveness to community needs.
