Review for The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a nonprofit consultant I work with many organizations, and The Jean Ledwith King Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan is as good as they come. JLKWC has a strategic vision of where it wants to be and the staff and operational volunteers to see it through to fruition. Its commitment to mission and ongoing review of everything it does to avoid "mission-drift" is noteworthy.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I've served as a volunteer and as a board member.

Review for The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am honored to be the Board Chair of The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan. TWC provides its services on a sliding scale fee structure, and no one is turned away due to an inability to pay. It is a vital community resource that is not a nonprofit luxury -- it is a community necessity. Along with our professional staff and cadre of volunteers, the Board of Directors is doing everything possible to ensure the long term sustainability of TWC so that it remains part of our community landscape for years to come. Everything we do at TWC is guided by three fundamental principles: increase confidence, increased competence, and increased connections. These principles are my constant motivation in my work with our Board of Directors, staff and volunteers. One of the things that makes me most proud of TWC is the efficiency with which TWC raises the funds necessary to keep its doors open for clients. There is no unncessary "overhead" -- there is space where our staff and volunteers serve clients directly and there are minimal staff salaries to deliver the services to clients. When an individual makes a donation or a funder makes a grant to TWC, they can be confident that those funds are used efficiently to make a difference in the lives of clients. I am grateful beyond words for the staff, interns, volunteers and my board colleagues who give so much of themselves in order to make the work of the Center possible.
