The Women's Center has a niche market/clientele that find peace and guidance wrapped in the wise direction of those that work at the Center. All of the adminstration, staff and volunteers understand the unique qualities that the Women's Center possess for anyone walking in off the street struggling with where to go next in life, in their careers, in their personal lives.
Having been involved with the Center since the first day they opened 14+ years ago, I have served in many capacities. I've been on the Board, volunteered in different capacities to assist for various programs and on an ongoing basis have donated time and money.
I am always humbled by the good people who work to provide a stable, steady, kind and nurturing atmosphere for all who enter. Please take some time to stop by and be amazed and dazzled by the work of the Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan.

I have personally been involved with this organization since its inception. I knew 2 of the founders personally and have gotten to know Kim (the current Executive Director) since she started with the Women's Center. These are amazing women who started the center and Kim, who continues to run The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan! They give their heart and soul to make everyone who is impacted by the center, feel like they have an extended family. When life is challenging enough, this group helps keep people grounded and able to find a new starting place or know that they can move on better than before. Everytime I visit the center, I am constantly reminded of the warmth of the staff and the caring way they help each client who comes in the door--whether it is for basic tax filing, job coaching, counseling thru tough times, or financial/legal support. It's truly an honor to be a part of this wonderful organization!

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

I've seen this organization come from a very grass roots level to where it is today. It would be wonderful to see this organization leap from its current level to an even greater, sustainable level going forward. They have so much to offer the public.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the incredibly talented an caring folks who run it!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all genuine and interested in helping whomever was in need.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do so much more than it already has done and be able to reach so many more folks who need various kinds of support.

The Women's Center (TWC) of Southeastern Michigan provides services that are otherwise sorely lacking in the community, and in some cases in the surrounding region. The small paid staff, troupe of interns and bevy of volunteers create an atmosphere of acceptance and empowerment that I have experienced no where else.

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

By taking advantage of the many program offerings, I have become more informed about issues that serve to disempower women, and what steps I can take that will made a difference in my own life, and the lives of those around me!

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

Give them more money! These hard working women and men are going incredible work here!!!

The women were a delight to work with and really appreciate our support. I just know that the money we raised is going to an amazing cause. I see the results first hand with new programs such as the free legal clinic for women.

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

Watching my roommates help put together a legal clinic for women, as well as organizing the many sets of clothing we have donated in an effort to help women look more professional for interviews.

The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan is an amazing resource for our community! I learned of this resource through a colleague who volunteers her time with the Center, and I was immediately impressed by the professionalism and kindness of all of the volunteers, staff members, and Board members that I met. I helped organize a fundraiser for the Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan, and through this experience had the opportunity to meet even more members of this wonderful organization. I was treated to a tour of their lovely new facility, and, again, was continually impressed by the dedication and true kindness of everyone associated with the Center. I look forward to volunteering with the Center soon!

The Women's Center of Southeast Michigan has been a great partner in my sorority's philanthropy. The volunteers and staff of the center have always done their best to work well with our members. They have also always shown amazing gratitude for our gifts.

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

Seeing the fantastic programs that come out of our donations - such as the legal clinic, which my roommate helps run.

This is an organization that really "walks its talk" and lives true to its mission. I am continuously impressed by how much they do on so little, in large part because of the multi-talented, incredibly dedicated staff, and in large part because of its incomparable volunteer cadre - including its deeply committed board of directors. I continue to be inspired by The Women's Center's dedication, professionalism, integrity, and commitment to living its values.

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

my personal and professional development.

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

make sure it had way more resources to work with!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the opportunity to witness lives transformed.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, multi-talented, passionate, committed beyond compare.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the world.

Ways to make it better...

The Women's Center had more resources with which to achieve its mission. I wish I could do more!!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am in awe of what The Women's Center has been able to do in its 10 years of existence.
