A Letter from the Executive Director



“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”  – Anne Frank




Dear Friends,
Here at the Women’s Center, we whole heartedly believe in the ancient African proverb, “it takes a whole village to raise a child”.   At our Center, our child/children are the many beneficiaries of our programs and our community is YOU!   As a result of your unwavering loyalty and support, I am pleased to share that we have had another extraordinary year full of accomplishments, memorable events, and life changing experiences.
The Women’s Center was founded over 40 years ago and remains a safe place for students of all backgrounds and walks of life to come together and receive various services.  Daily, our halls are filled with students seeking services from pre-college counseling and services, leadership training, re-entry advising, affordable SAT & GRE prep classes to domestic violence and human trafficking programming.
We are so fortunate to have such an engaging and active community.  We counted, hundreds of Advisory Board Members, mentors, tutors, volunteers, workshop facilitators, and more have brokenheartedly invested their time, energy and funds into our programs this year!    We are overwhelmed with gratitude for all those who flock to our doors to help propel the status of women and girls in our community!   Your motivation and passion for social justice is contagious.  Together, we are effecting change!  I appreciate and am forever grateful for YOU!
Your dedication and financial support have enabled us to achieve the goals for all our services!  Thank you!  Please see the following pages for additional information about this year’s achievements and program highlights.
Warm Regards,

Sutapa Basu, Ph.D
