Over all my experience attenting the Women's Intercultural Center has been a great experince, I got to feel like I was part of them for the mean while. I enjoyed getting to see so manny diffferent faces as well as recognizing faces everyday whom they keep coming back. I helped around the store that the center provided, and also had people fill out questionarities for a project that the boss was working on. I also had the chance to meet and talk to older woman do to their personal experince. It was not only shoking to hear this touching stories, but it allowed me to value my self as an indivial and to recognize, and not let myself if I was ever to be in a situation like theirs. this experience also allowed me to attend and to be part of a Wiz Latina conference which was also a great experience that really moved me. For me not to forget whom we are and how special, and powerful we are and could be as Latinas. Overall my experience help me to gain confidence as a character and to believe in myself to achieve my goals in life. the center reminded me that woman are stronger that what they actually seem to be, and no matter how bad, painful, or awful a situation gets woman will always rise.

I have had several events held at the Center. The staff is polite, extremely helpful, and capable. The food good (I generally don't eat during events but am told its delicious) and the space large with lots of light and general ambiance. Decent parking and the location puts you in the middle of the community. They provide technology but you should bring your own screen/projector for something larger. That's the only critique I can muster. An overall great place to utilize.

At the beginning of 1916 I began volunteering at the Center and LOVED it! Creating found object art workshops that refreshed the walls in the Art Gallery while showing participants that anyone could CREATE! Participants were given the option of keeping their work or making it available to sell. Due to circumstances I took a 'furlough' & am looking forward to return SOON!

For me art is FUN & therapeutic. I consider it a joy to share the creative experience with others.

I've visited The Women's Intercultural Center for numerous years, initially donating books and other items so I've had the opportunity to watch it evolve. As a found object artist who is tired of 'lugging' my work around to small markets, I decided at the end of 2015 that I would contact nonprofits from Las Cruces, NM down to El Paso, TX offering my art to be used in fundraisers. Nice idea until I realized the time, etc. in doing that! One day, out of the blue, I receive a phone call from Mary Carter. She told me how she remembered the art curating I had done some years back at a local utility company and 'might' I be interested in doing the same for The Center? WOULD I? YOU BET I would! Also that she recognized the need to expand the art programs which would also benefit the community.
I am SO looking forward to working with this dynamic person, curating, conducting art workshops and bringing more affordable art to the area. Art is a venue that lifts people up, that teaches life skills along with problem solving. It's an equalizer in the sense that anyone can create! on and on and on!
2016 WILL BE a great year for The Women's Intercultural Center!

The WIC is a fantastic resource for people and business between El Paso and Las Cruces. The building provides amenities you need and want and the staff is supremely helpful. When you want to reach the communities of far west El Paso and far south Dona Ana the WIC is your fist choice.

Love, love, love! I started volunteering here back in October of 2015. I love it because the center offers so many great things to the community. From english classes to zumba, whatever you want to do to better your life this place is the one to go. Not to mention the staff I worked with were simply awesome! Beginning with Mary, she always brought out the best in me, always giving great advice when I needed.
