The Women's Center has a niche market/clientele that find peace and guidance wrapped in the wise direction of those that work at the Center. All of the adminstration, staff and volunteers understand the unique qualities that the Women's Center possess for anyone walking in off the street struggling with where to go next in life, in their careers, in their personal lives.
Having been involved with the Center since the first day they opened 14+ years ago, I have served in many capacities. I've been on the Board, volunteered in different capacities to assist for various programs and on an ongoing basis have donated time and money.
I am always humbled by the good people who work to provide a stable, steady, kind and nurturing atmosphere for all who enter. Please take some time to stop by and be amazed and dazzled by the work of the Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan.

I have personally been involved with this organization since its inception. I knew 2 of the founders personally and have gotten to know Kim (the current Executive Director) since she started with the Women's Center. These are amazing women who started the center and Kim, who continues to run The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan! They give their heart and soul to make everyone who is impacted by the center, feel like they have an extended family. When life is challenging enough, this group helps keep people grounded and able to find a new starting place or know that they can move on better than before. Everytime I visit the center, I am constantly reminded of the warmth of the staff and the caring way they help each client who comes in the door--whether it is for basic tax filing, job coaching, counseling thru tough times, or financial/legal support. It's truly an honor to be a part of this wonderful organization!

The Women's Center (TWC) of Southeastern Michigan provides services that are otherwise sorely lacking in the community, and in some cases in the surrounding region. The small paid staff, troupe of interns and bevy of volunteers create an atmosphere of acceptance and empowerment that I have experienced no where else.

The women were a delight to work with and really appreciate our support. I just know that the money we raised is going to an amazing cause. I see the results first hand with new programs such as the free legal clinic for women.

The Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan is an amazing resource for our community! I learned of this resource through a colleague who volunteers her time with the Center, and I was immediately impressed by the professionalism and kindness of all of the volunteers, staff members, and Board members that I met. I helped organize a fundraiser for the Women's Center of Southeastern Michigan, and through this experience had the opportunity to meet even more members of this wonderful organization. I was treated to a tour of their lovely new facility, and, again, was continually impressed by the dedication and true kindness of everyone associated with the Center. I look forward to volunteering with the Center soon!

The Women's Center of Southeast Michigan has been a great partner in my sorority's philanthropy. The volunteers and staff of the center have always done their best to work well with our members. They have also always shown amazing gratitude for our gifts.

This is an organization that really "walks its talk" and lives true to its mission. I am continuously impressed by how much they do on so little, in large part because of the multi-talented, incredibly dedicated staff, and in large part because of its incomparable volunteer cadre - including its deeply committed board of directors. I continue to be inspired by The Women's Center's dedication, professionalism, integrity, and commitment to living its values.
