Review for Women's Center of Jacksonville, Inc., Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I think it is a great privilege to volunteer with this organization, because the Women's Center of Jacksonville genuinely works to fulfill its mission to support women and to nurture mind, body, and spirit. The support and advocacy this agency provides to sexual assault victims is, sadly, very much needed. Affordable and high quality mental health counseling is even more important than usual in the current economic situation, and so is a program like Expanded Horizons, which helps adult women achieve literacy. When I attended the annual celebration of achievements for the women in this program, their new confidence in their abilities was awe-inspiring.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

talking with women who have been served by its programs, and watching them become empowered.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

add more support staff.

Role:  Volunteer & I'm on the board and serve on various committees.
