The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan
July 16, 2010

I came to The Women's Center when I was a mature student in a Master's of Social Work program with an idea for a program the community didn't have, information about the Earned Income Tax Credit and the assistance to help folks access this important tax credit for the working poor. A few years later I was hired and now am a staff member. The program is in it's eighth year, has a stable group of committed volunteers and scores of loyal and new clients every spring. This year we are establishing year round access to income tax preparation assistance. Individuals and families can electronically file current taxes with the support and encouragement of a knowledgeable, committed volunteer. Although it is a little more difficult we assist folks file past year taxes as well. I serve as the volunteer coordinator and we literally could not run our agency without our loyal, responsible, generous, and committed volunteers. I cannot say enough good things about them. I have been a social worker for over 30 years and this is one of the most responsible, concerned, committed agency I have ever worked at. I feel lucky to be employed at The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan. We help women change their lives everyday and I find great joy and gratification from that fact.

The Great!

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

the number of calls, letters, donations we receive from women who are SO thankful for the assistance they received from TWC as they worked to change their lives.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very caring and generous!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

relax a little bit!
