San Francisco Women's Centers
February 24, 2011

I felt at home in the Women's Building, from the moment I walked in to be trained as a volunteer for SFWAR many years ago. I still love being there -- the building is vibrant with activities and happenings. I so appreciate that there is a place for a community supporting women and girls. I always find all the people there to be committed, caring, and kind -- even as they attend to their many endeavors. I feel grateful to be part of it all. SFWAR, the group I volunteer for, does an outstanding job of being a support network and service for victims of sexual abuse. It would be devastating if this organization did not exist and it would be a huge loss if the Women's Building did not exist. The Women's Building is a unique contribution to the life of San Francisco and the Bay area.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If I had to make changes, I would figure out a way to raise additional funds so there could be more staff for the services SFWAR provides and so that the staff could be paid more. The staff is awesome.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I handle crisis line calls as a certified sexual assault counselor.
