I stayed at the women's intercultural center in January for a BAE trip with other fellow students from the college of St. Benedict and St. John's University. We had an amazing time and were extremely impressed by the level of organization, incredible amount of hospitality we were shown on and off the center, and the inspiration the women had to help better the lives of future members. I plan to visit again this summer, it is such a wonderful place and I believe this is a safe haven for many women and more than worth putting time and effort into to support. The women in El Paso and surrounding communities have and will continue to greatly benefit from the support provided at this center.

I began volunteering at the Women's Intercultural Center per the request of their Technology Director. Honestly at first I didn't know what I was getting myself into and what the Center did at all. It only took me a couple of the days to realize how incredible and beneficial this Center was to the community. They did everything in their power to help women and men of all cultures and income levels to become educated and empowered. I got to see many of the classes in action and how happy the women were with the education they were getting. Each day I learned more and more about the Center and everything they do to help these women and men. They have English as a Second Language classes, GED classes, Small Business Academy classes, sewing, art, mechanical classes, counseling services. You name it they got it or there on the way to creating more programs to benefit the women. I was astounded and amazed that this organization cared so much for it's people that I decided I would give as much time as possible to help them. Whether it would be volunteering or donating, I will always support them.

I experience the results everyday but it is you the one reading the review that needs to come in and see the results for yourself. Support this center and its goals.

I wouldn't make any changes their great at where their at, but I wish I could convince more people to donate to organizations like this. These are the organizations that need funding. PETA, RedCross, and other major non-profits have funding to last them years, but an organization like this doesn't get that kind of funding we need more donors.

This center plays a very important role in the community in Anthony. It helps women on many different levels. When my wife first arrived to this country, she did not speak English and her self-confidence was low. The classes at the center helped her not only to learn English, but also helped improve her self-esteem with workshops on emotional issues, health, and many more. The building is beautifully built, and the amount of lives helped through this center is innumerable. Please support this important place.

This Center is amazing and has inspired me to help as many people as I possibly can. Often times I didn't know how just talking to these women can help them overcome any obstacle that they run into. The Center provides a great service to the community and they truly achieve their goal of educating and empowering women. These women come in and introduce themselves seeking a way to escape depression and isolation and they come out like superhero's ready to take on the world. The classes offered at the center are not only educational but their fun. When I had to volunteer at the center I didn't know what I was getting myself into, but I don't regret seeing these amazing results.

I am a member at Anthony United Methodist Church. I have had discussions and worked with the Womens Intercultural Center on many occasions usually associated with programs our church has been involved with.

In Anthony, NM and TX (dual city) we have a majority population of Hispanic and
many poor and needy residents. What has impressed me most about the Center is that they are engaged in changing the lives of the ladies who attend the Center. Most programs in our area are engaged in hand-outs for these people. The Center gives them programs that change their lives by training them to help themselves and the confidence to take risks to improve their economic and social standing in the community. I have talked to ladies who attend the Center and they tell me about how much they have changed since attending.

The workers at the Center truly believe in what they are doing and they are dedicated to changing our community one lady at a time.

Please help them any way you can to continue their mission.
Thank you, Nancy McClure

This organization is truly an inspiration to not only woman but people in general of any race, age, or background. They are an equal opportunity place that helps everyone get back on their feet wether it be by helping with GED's or counceling for any situation. I am glad to know that there are organizations out there willing to help the community and make a difference in the lives of people who have came to them seeking for help. I truly hope to see it keep growing and getting more people aware of the work that they do and that they will want to get involved when they see how great it all is.

The Women's Intercultural Center has been our host for several Border Awareness Experience programs for our "Crossing Borders" class in the Honors Program at the University of New Mexico and at the Santa Fe Community College We deeply appreciated the wonderful efforts of Nancy Gepfert in organizing superior programs and also look forward to working with Teresa sometime. All of our experiences with the Center were rich, moving, and rewarding. It is uplifting to see the commitment that the staff, volunteers, and participants have in bringing education, justice, and also fun and pleasure to the lives of those served by the Center. I have always admired the work of the Center.

The Great!

the comments of the students who were transformed by what they learned in the Border Awareness Experience (truly an occasion for "awareness") and by their home stays in Anthony.

I'll use three words to describe this center, UNIQUE, AMAZING, CARING. The Center is an incredible place for everyone of all ages, genders, races, and cultures. They truly show the example of the definition of Intercultural, no one is denied and they are always there to help. Who would have known that something that started out from just a house and garage would grow into the facility they are now. Though I'm only able to volunteer once in a while this place has made an incredible impact in the way I view life. Before coming here I didn't know how many people needed help rather did I care at all. They opened my eyes to a new world that I had never seen before. The way they help people with their ESL classes, GED classes, computer, zumba, counseling services. They tackle on depression like it was nothing and they even help women and men find the voice to tackle community issues that affect the community greatly. I hope this center can stick around to affect many more lives.

The Great!

The Women's Intercultural Center is a great place to work and study. I just started volunteering at the center. Everyone here is very nice and helpful. I like to see the women coming out of their classes because they are always so pleased with what they have learned. I thought the center only offered classes to women, but men can also enroll. It's a great place for a community to grow.

The Great!

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

the way the students are so pleased when they come out of class. I have also participated in a program offered at the center and it taught me a lot about the region I live in.

Ways to make it better...

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

offer a daycare. Today, some women didn't come to class because their kids were out of school due to parent teacher conferences, I assume. I think providing a daycare for children during their parents' class would be very beneficial.
