This non-profit serves the community of Anthony providing assistance to people. They graciously let us use a room to have a meeting even though we're not members as they knew it would help a member of the community. I wish there were more agencies like the Women's Intercultural Center. Thank you for your generosity.

The Women's Intercultural Center is a wonderful non-profit that serves the women of Dona Ana county. I work for a different non-profit in the area and WInC is always bustling with activities, meetings, and many people--always a great sign for a center! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and the center does so much good in the community with the food pantry, counseling services, sexual assault recovery services and so much more. Keep up the great work!!

As a environmentalist living in New Mexico, I was particularly interested in what the Women's Intercultural Center was doing in terms of their recycling and building with recycled materials. I was very impressed to find that their building is built with recycled tires and glass and that not only do they recycle the usual items: cans, plastic, glass -- they recycle clothes and even make new items from recycled materials. The center empowers the members through GED training, employment training, micro-business training and civic engagement. They rent out their facility to the public and house volunteers to help them run the organization. They have empowered and assisted many women to become more self-sufficient and leaders in their community all while using very innovative fundraising strategies and useful programming. Congratulations to the Women's Intercultural Center and keep up the good work!

My girls were introduced to the center last summer. They enjoy going and learning art activities. My 14 year old took it upon her self to make mosaic crosses and boxes to give to family members and tin art for then as well. They are ready to go back this summer. My 9 year old loved the rumba classes and the jewelry making she also made gifts for her sisters. They have invited other friends to join 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.

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 serves two states New Mexico and Texas in Anthony. I refer several community members to the organization due to the amount of resources this organization has an out reach for. They also provide community awareness classes related to the community. Since Ms. Carter assumed the director position, I have seen this organization grow within the community. While the facility in located in Anthony, New Mexico the Anthony Texas Police Department works together for the good of the community. The education and awareness this program outputs is beneficial to those who are interested. A very well rounded organization.

The Women's Intercultural Center is something I have never seen before, it's a very unique center and very important to the community. I learn that all of their programming is initially thought up off by the participants. They give the participants an opportunity to speak up and share what they think are the major issues affecting the community. The center in turns creates programming to fit their needs. I hope people will help this organization grow especially when funding is becoming a major issue in this economy.

The WInC is a geat place for women of the surrounding communities to come together and experience companionship, personal growth, strength, compassion, and knowledge. I have been a member since October 2010. I attend the exercise class only, but I have seen the fruits of many other women who attend a number of other classes, such as painting, sewing, and jewelry making. I am a native of Anthony, but I never really knew what a blessing I have in my own neighborhood. That blessing is the WInC! I have recently retired from a school district after 25 plus years of service. My intention is to continue learning about the center and of the many services it provides. I want to contribute in some way.
