The Women's Intercultural Center is a wonderful non-profit that serves the women of Dona Ana county. I work for a different non-profit in the area and WInC is always bustling with activities, meetings, and many people--always a great sign for a center! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and the center does so much good in the community with the food pantry, counseling services, sexual assault recovery services and so much more. Keep up the great work!!

As a environmentalist living in New Mexico, I was particularly interested in what the Women's Intercultural Center was doing in terms of their recycling and building with recycled materials. I was very impressed to find that their building is built with recycled tires and glass and that not only do they recycle the usual items: cans, plastic, glass -- they recycle clothes and even make new items from recycled materials. The center empowers the members through GED training, employment training, micro-business training and civic engagement. They rent out their facility to the public and house volunteers to help them run the organization. They have empowered and assisted many women to become more self-sufficient and leaders in their community all while using very innovative fundraising strategies and useful programming. Congratulations to the Women's Intercultural Center and keep up the good work!

My girls were introduced to the center last summer. They enjoy going and learning art activities. My 14 year old took it upon her self to make mosaic crosses and boxes to give to family members and tin art for then as well. They are ready to go back this summer. My 9 year old loved the rumba classes and the jewelry making she also made gifts for her sisters. They have invited other friends to join them.

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.
