The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan
May 8, 2010
This is an easy place for both women and men to get help, even though the programs are designed specifically to empower women. I first came to The Women's Center because I was feeling stuck. Over the years, I have seen that this is not unusual. Many of us feel stuck for any number of reasons: relationship problems, care-giving challenges, strained finances, overwhelming responsibilities, and limited decision-making power. The results are the same: Emotional paralysis. Anger. Depression. Anxiety.
Identifying our strengths is the first step in getting "unstuck." Women's Center volunteers and staff are committed to helping people build on their best qualities, and this encouraging attitude is evident in their relationships with program participants and with each other. Many volunteers are former clients like myself, who know how critical low-cost, accessible support can be.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the growth I see in clients, interns, volunteers, and staff.
the privilege of working with wise and resilient colleagues.
the evidence that women who claim their power can change the world.
