The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan
September 11, 2014

I am PROUD to be the new Chair of The Women's Center of SE Michigan. I'm also the 'old'est chairperson as I was a co-founder and first Chair in 2000. This last year has been a very difficult one - financially - and, in fact, we had to briefly close our doors in June. But the tenacity of the staff, volunteer supervisors, interns, and a major donor brought me to my feet and, together, we're taking a stand! We have long recognized the need to become financially more sustainable, but how to do so and not compromise our principles was a difficult hurdle to cross. Together, we are on Journey 2.0. Together, we have developed an additional program, Room To Talkā„¢, where licensed therapists trained by TWC in the past, will be able to provide services to insured individuals and where those who do not wish to use their insurance and/or have the ability to pay a reduced fee will be seen by limited licensed therapists. We hope to have this program fully launched by January, 2015. TWC is also in the process of working toward expansion of its many group programs. We can use your help! Please consider making a donation by going to our website: www.womenscentersemi.org. Thank you!

The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan
March 30, 2011

What a wonderful event to honor Jean Ledworth King last weekend! Over 250 people were present to honor her and to support the Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan, shortly to be renamed the Jean L. King Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan. The presentations clearly demonstrated the values that the Women's Center represents and the uniqueness of this organization that serves many hundreds of women, children and their families each year.

The Great!
