So dear and close to my heart, I have been donating to this organization for more than 10 years. Every little thing counts. Every donation is wholeheartedly welcome with a smile. A member of my family unexpectedly needed help and I saw first hand how this organization matters and is much needed by abused women and children. Rest assure your $$$ are well used to help these women. The people who run this place got their "A" game. Keep up the good work.

Thr Fort Bend County Women's Center is dedicated to helping women and children. Having volunteered for years, the resources available to help women are very plentiful.

When the women leave the center, they are given avenues to help them succeed taking back their independence.

I have been interning for Fort Bend Women's Center for 5 months now, and absolutely love the work they're doing. The staff is constantly working towards being client-based with a focus on hope, healing and connectivity. They offer counseling services, neurofeedback, shelter for those escaping crisis, career services, case management and much more. The neurofeedback piece is what sets this organization apart from the rest because no other domestic violence organization is conducting research on the effects of neurofeedback with domestic violence victims.

For the past five years I have donated my business suits to the Fort Bend Women's Center. Survivors of domestic violence come to the center with only the clothes on their backs. Many times these women are working career professionals and don't have clothes to go to work. I'm privilege to be able to donate twice a year to such a worthy cause.

As a donor, I find this organization to be well organized and very caring. They accept donations seven days a week and the staff/volunteers are always thoughtful and polite. They offer training to the public so that we can work with the Women's Center. This is a very important and effective nonprofit. I support them wholeheartedly.

The Fort Bend County Women's Center is an intricate part of our community in Fort Bend. They do an outstanding job of providing services to hundreds, if not thousands, of women, children and men every year. FBCWC has raised pubic awareness of the problem of domestic violence and has provided valuable services to those affected for many years. I have helped the FBCWC with several of their major fund raising events over the past 18 years and find the character of their leadership and management of the organization exceptional. I am very proud to be a part of such a vital organization in our community

Donating items to the Fort Bend County Women's Center is not only easy but a delight. I have been a frequent donor of both clothing and household items as I was moving to a smaller home. The volunteers at the collection center were always so helpful and cheerful. The pick up at home was easy to work with and the truck showed up on time. Knowing how and where the items were going to be used made giving more personal and made me want to give more. Diana

It is always a delight to volunteer in any capacity with FBWC. The staff is so genuine in their mission and you can truly see the positive changes they invoke in each family’s life. In the past I was able to be more active. If I had more time I would increase my contribution to the volunteer team, but for now I like to direct those that do to volunteer and monetarily contribute to a great cause and some amazing people!
