Oakland Women's Center helps women improve their quality of life by providing them with training, links to resources, and connections with each other. I have seen a woman come in devastated, meet with the counselor weekly, and come out a different person. The women feel valued and the work is important.
I ran the Half Marathon in 2015, with one of my best times. Though I won't be able to run the Half this time, it will be even more memorable raising money for a cause I believe in and with a baby in tow!
I love my job! Please consider helping in providing valuable resources to the women of Oakland.
