Welcoming center with great facilities for group events!
Our organization needed a place to host a retreat in a very short notice, since our original plans changed last minute. Luckily, The Women’s Intercultural Center was able to work with us in a timely manner and accommodate to our needs. Our retreat was a success in great part for the wonderful and inviting facilities, dorms, a full kitchen, classrooms, a rooftop, and even a fire place! Every one of our participants was fascinated with the location and inspired by the genuine work this center does. This center welcomes everyone like family and walks side by side with their clients to achieve their success. A welcoming and friendly spirit is perceived the moment you walk through their doors where everyone is ready to give a hand.

The WinC is a great organization. The center is a one stop shop for any Women's issue one can think of. The center empowers women to fulfill their dreams through educational, political and economic resources. Many of the people that are helped by the center have never had the self esteem to begin their own business. There are numerous successful Alumni.

The dedication and strive for women's education is something I have seen in no other organization. The center assist women in developing action plans on financing and/or using the centers resources for various educational pursuits. For some it may be college for others it may be a specific trade. The summer program which immerges students in the border region is a well known program; which helps highlight the issues on the border.

The center helps develop self reliance in the participants of the program. It is based on a three step approach. The approaches are circular in nature so none is more important than the other, but simply build upon each other. These three approaches are education, economic self sufficiency and consciousness raising for change. In the education aspect the center has partnered with Dona Ana Community College to bring the participants opportunities to study ESL, citizenship and GED programs. The eventual goal is to bring the participant up to the level of being a self sustaining entrepreneur who can make a difference in the community and pass on the opportunities to other needy individuals in the area.

The WInC has been a tremendously helpful resource for my documentary film, journalism, and my own international community-building initiatives.

The staff have consistently gone above and beyond to make sure that I have had access to a diverse range of voices for my projects, and they are refreshingly open-minded and non-dogmatic about a host of highly politicized issues around border and immigration policies.

Most importantly, the staff are just really sincere people, who are as kind and helpful as they are hard working and open to new ideas.

I have traveled all over and worked with community-based institutions in many countries, and the WInC easily stands out as one of the best, and an example to be emulated.
