They can improve by giving better gloves and have us show how much we did every thirty minutes

This non-pofit organization is certainly one of the best I've worked with. The facility is not only staffed with a highly informed director but they're friendly and always willing to work with new clients.
Thank you Mary Carter!

I was physically abused my ex husband, which I was for over four years. Not only physically, but mentally. I was with him since I was 14 years old, he was very possessive, until recently, he decided to attack me. Someone had already told me ababout this great place, before I was brutally attacked, but I always took is as a "I'll go later." Not until it happened was when I decided to go. I've got to admit, at first I was very embarrassed because of the situation, but they give you such a welcoming and warming experience, they treat you and make you feel like you're actually worth something. I highly recommend this organization to any woman who is facing any type of abuse. Whether it's emotional, physical, or mental abuse.

I had the pleasure of working with some of the women at The Women's Intercultural Center and I must say that they were super helpful and professional! Mary Carter and her team worked alongside members from Project Back to School to help distribute backpacks. They offered their space to us for distribution and then went above and beyond by also providing volunteers for us. Their building was also beautiful and clean, making this an overall AWESOME experience!

I have been here for 7 years as a volunteer and participant. After I retired my goal was to be active in the community. My family and friends recommended the Women's Intercultural Center. I found peace and fulfillment i the work we did. It was a great experience working with Mary Carter and her staff. The Center is what it is because of Mary. She truly is gifted!

I have seen the positive results int he persons that have received assistance in education, counseling, financial and more.

What I have enjoyed most about my experience with the Women's Intercultural Center is their welcoming of one and all...consistently. The staff and volunteers are friendly, kind, generous, trained, hardworking, good listeners, informed and interested.

I came to the Center to one class then I took additional classes and even though I still take classes, I am now a volunteer instructor. Additionally, I received a contract to make cakes when one of the donors of the Center stopped by for a visit. The employees, the volunteers and everyone that is here has helped me a lot and I have made lots of friends when I had none. As I plan my 25th wedding anniversary everyone here is helping with the table arrangements, making the food and so much more. I didn't even ask for help, they all offered to help because this is how it works here. I love it here and everyone involved with the Center.

I am very disappointed with the woman's cultural center. A a woman that is trying to stay fit and healthy and I always thought that The Woman's Heath Center was for the woman's well being, unfortunalty that Is not the case in this matter. I have been doing very well doing Zumba my dr advices me not to stop doing my Zumba and my instructor has motivated me keep it up. I would just like to see what we can do to stop this injustice and I do believe the woman that is in charge at this time is not being fair on kicking the Zumba class out of the Center. Again THE WOMAN'S CULTURAL CENTER IS FOR THE WOMAN AND WE ARE GETTING KICKED OUT! We need to find somebody that cares for the woman and help the woman of this community. I do hope something is done and we can have justice.

I had a chance to attend the Border Awareness Experience at the Women's Intercultural Center and if I had to use one word to describe it, it would be "INCREDIBLE". Of course I can use more words than that such as amazing, inspiring, educational, fantastic, life-changing, eye-opening, unbelievable, there's just so much I can say about it. When I first signed on to take part in the Border Awareness Experience I was expecting to be stuck in presentations and just full on powerpoints on immigration, honestly something that would put me to sleep, but the experience at the center was nowhere close to that. I was truly immersed into the experience by having a chance to go on a Border Patrol Tour with actual Border Patrol Agents, host family stays, hearing from a Federal Judge at a Federal Immigration Court, visiting organizations around the city that work with immigrants, and what made the experience truly extraordinary were our hosts at the Center. Two guys by the names of Saif and Eric lead the experience and we met with the Executive Director Mary Carter who was just an inspiring individual with anything she had to say. It was these people that made the experience so much better. Saif actually coordinated and planned out everything my school did for the whole week we were there, and what surprised me the most was that he was so young. I didn't expect someone so young to plan such an amazing experience and be so knowledgable on immigration issues. Saif provided us a lot of insight on the History of the Border and not only the history of immigration and the issues it faces. He was very open and honest with us and I loved it. If the experience would have been just a week hearing from him, I think it would have been perfect as well. Besides being captivated by everything we were learning it was also nice to have the leisure time that was given to us to have fun, go shopping, and hang out with our hosts. Saif and Eric are hilarious and fun to hang out with. They are the perfect combination of seriousness and jokesters they made the experience unforgettable. All I have to say is to anyone that reads this take on the Border Awareness Experience if you have the chance and if at all possible request Saif and Eric to be your guides. Thank you Mary, Saif, Eric, and the Women's Intercultural Center for providing me a life-changing experience that I will never forget.
