The Women’s Building

The Women's Building

Since 1971, San Francisco Women’s Centers has represented, and been guided by, the belief that all women and girls have the right to safe, joyous and creative lives. In 1979, the organization purchased The Women’s Building, creating one of the first women-owned community centers.

Our mission is to provide women and girls with the tools and resources they need to achieve full and equal participation in society.

Every day at The Women’s Building:

  • Women can take care of themselves and their families by using our social services.
  • The well-being of women and girls is improved by our social justice advocacy.
  • Community Groups, including our In-House Organizations, strengthen their community work by interacting and partnering with us and each other in a vibrant, socially progressive and affordable space.

Each year we welcome over 20,000 women and their families, and connect them with social services, community-involvement opportunities, and arts, wellness and educational events.

The information above can be found on the official website of The Women’s Building. For more details about the organization and to find out how you can volunteer, please visit their website:
