New Mexico State University's Service Learning Office in the College of Education introduced so many of us to this organization and the good they have to offer...by being one of their participating community agencies it has introduced many of us to volunteer in return for the good of our local communities and citizens!
I would like to support this charity so more people would come to the Women Center. I like to go to the Women Intercultural Center a lot because I go to the classes that I like such as Zumba, Sewing, Advanced Jewelry, and Tai Chi. I also go volunteering at the Women Intercultural Center in my free time to help and get work experience so I won't get bored. I also like to go to trainings and workshops given at the Women Intercultural Center to learn more.
The center for me is a place that provides help for learning different activities. It also makes me feel good about developing relationships within the community and being a part of something great!
I came to volunteer for a NMSU project and I am so glad I did. This center is one of the most inspiring and amazing places I have ever came across. It empowers women, changes lives and brings together a community. I am so glad to be apart of this powerful movement and I plan to stay long after I graduate. Thank you so much Women's Intercultural Center for what you have done and continute to do!!
The Women's Intercultural Center is a wonderful place that allows women and men to learn new skills and to be surrounded by their fellow community. It's surrounded by helpful employees that are always there to help you when in need with anything. It's a place where a person can feel safe and secure and have lots of opportunities to learn new and useful skills. It's a wonderful place overall with wonderful people that are always willing to give a helping hand to one another.
I attended the Border Awareness Experience offered by the Center and I must say exceptional job indeed. I was very impressed at how knowledgeable Saif and Teresa were with Border & Immigration Issues. Every question we shot their way they were able to answer. My favorite part about the Border Awareness Experience was that it showed two sides of the Border Issues. We got to meet and speak with Border Patrol, while being provided a Border Patrol tour, and we got to meet with Pro-Migrant groups and how they view the issues of the Border. With the center's role of being unbiased it creates a perfect opportunity for students and adults from around the nation to learn about the Border. I applaud the Center for the many classes that are offered their as speaking to the participants they highly enjoy them. I couldn't imagine Anthony without WinC been in the mix. They are a truly exceptional non-profit. All my love and prayers go out to the Women's Intercultural Center.
Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of bringing a group of my university colleagues on a border awareness experience at the Women's Intercultural Center in Anthony, New Mexico. The week was incredible!! The staff at the center were professional, knowledeable, accommodating, and kindly willing to serve as our teachers, guides, and translators for the week. The community of clients at WinC was inspirational. There was a positive, happy healthy spirit in all of the classes, programs and social events that we observed and particpated in. I have worked as a social worker at many non-profits in my career, and the WInC is truly special. All are welcome, services are directed by the needs of the people served, and staff are happy, open and supportive of one another. It was truly a healthy envioronment, emotionally and spiritually, and I am conviced that is why their programming is so successful in helping their clients meet their goals. We left our week-in-residence at the WInC feeling so inspired, uplifted, and hopeful.
El Centro Intercultural de la Mujer me ha ayudado mucho porque gracias a que podemos usar el internet pude terminar proyectos de la escuela. Gracias a que temos este centro en la comunidad muchas personas podemos aprovechar nueastro tiempo haciendo cosas que nos gustan y que nos hacen bien. Es muy bueno tener este centro en nuestra communidad.
The Women's Intercultural Center opened my eyes to the issues on the U.S./Mexico Border. From touring with Border Patrol, visiting nonprofit organizations, staying with host families, the Women's Intercultural Center provided us with the knowledge that we needed to be informed persons in society. I think that this center is the best way to learn about these issues, and I wish that everyone could experience the border in the way that the Women's Intercultural Center has developed its Border Awareness Experience. The services that the organization also provides with to the women in Anthony and El Paso help them better their lives. They provide services for women so that the women can get ahead in life. This truly is the best organization I have ever worked with! I am confident they will continue to do wonderful things for the world.
This is a wonderful place. They empower women and help them to learn a skill, but it is much more than that. They help women connect with other women, giving them a community.
I stayed there for a week while we learned about border issues. Several varying viewpoints and perspectives were presented and we had small group discussions/reflections about the issues.
I went on a trip with my college to learn more about the U.S./Mexico border and the issues surrounding it. While in the New Mexico/Texas region, the Women's Intercultural Center was nice enough to host us and share with us their experience of the border. While there we were accomodated to food and housing as well as many fun outings and informational tours. We were also able to stay a few nights with some of the women from the center in order to get a more personalized experience, which was my favorite part. I learned alot about what the center does for the women (and men!) who come to the center and the opportunities they provide for the women to learn, be creative, and be self-supporting. The women I encountered were strong and independent and excited about all the center had done for them and their family. The staff was knowledgable, curteous, and fun while sharing with us a personal perspective to the issues of immigration and culture which we came to learn about.
I stayed at the women's intercultural center in January for a BAE trip with other fellow students from the college of St. Benedict and St. John's University. We had an amazing time and were extremely impressed by the level of organization, incredible amount of hospitality we were shown on and off the center, and the inspiration the women had to help better the lives of future members. I plan to visit again this summer, it is such a wonderful place and I believe this is a safe haven for many women and more than worth putting time and effort into to support. The women in El Paso and surrounding communities have and will continue to greatly benefit from the support provided at this center.
para mi es muy importante ayuar a esta organizacion por que contribuye mucho para la conmunidad de anthony y sus alrededores. personalmente yo apoyo a esta organizacion por que para mi familia ha sido muy importante. mi esposa llego ahi como voluntaria, y conforme siguio ella ahi, se le ofrecieron para un empleo. es algo que a ella le ha ayudado mucho en terminos personales, he visto grandes cambios y logros en ella gracias a la ayuda y apoyo de esta organizacion.
I began volunteering at the Women's Intercultural Center per the request of their Technology Director. Honestly at first I didn't know what I was getting myself into and what the Center did at all. It only took me a couple of the days to realize how incredible and beneficial this Center was to the community. They did everything in their power to help women and men of all cultures and income levels to become educated and empowered. I got to see many of the classes in action and how happy the women were with the education they were getting. Each day I learned more and more about the Center and everything they do to help these women and men. They have English as a Second Language classes, GED classes, Small Business Academy classes, sewing, art, mechanical classes, counseling services. You name it they got it or there on the way to creating more programs to benefit the women. I was astounded and amazed that this organization cared so much for it's people that I decided I would give as much time as possible to help them. Whether it would be volunteering or donating, I will always support them.
This center plays a very important role in the community in Anthony. It helps women on many different levels. When my wife first arrived to this country, she did not speak English and her self-confidence was low. The classes at the center helped her not only to learn English, but also helped improve her self-esteem with workshops on emotional issues, health, and many more. The building is beautifully built, and the amount of lives helped through this center is innumerable. Please support this important place.
This Center is amazing and has inspired me to help as many people as I possibly can. Often times I didn't know how just talking to these women can help them overcome any obstacle that they run into. The Center provides a great service to the community and they truly achieve their goal of educating and empowering women. These women come in and introduce themselves seeking a way to escape depression and isolation and they come out like superhero's ready to take on the world. The classes offered at the center are not only educational but their fun. When I had to volunteer at the center I didn't know what I was getting myself into, but I don't regret seeing these amazing results.
I am a member at Anthony United Methodist Church. I have had discussions and worked with the Womens Intercultural Center on many occasions usually associated with programs our church has been involved with.
In Anthony, NM and TX (dual city) we have a majority population of Hispanic and many poor and needy residents. What has impressed me most about the Center is that they are engaged in changing the lives of the ladies who attend the Center. Most programs in our area are engaged in hand-outs for these people. The Center gives them programs that change their lives by training them to help themselves and the confidence to take risks to improve their economic and social standing in the community. I have talked to ladies who attend the Center and they tell me about how much they have changed since attending.
The workers at the Center truly believe in what they are doing and they are dedicated to changing our community one lady at a time.
Please help them any way you can to continue their mission.
Thank you, Nancy McClure
This organization is truly an inspiration to not only woman but people in general of any race, age, or background. They are an equal opportunity place that helps everyone get back on their feet wether it be by helping with GED's or counceling for any situation. I am glad to know that there are organizations out there willing to help the community and make a difference in the lives of people who have came to them seeking for help. I truly hope to see it keep growing and getting more people aware of the work that they do and that they will want to get involved when they see how great it all is.
