The Women’s Building is temporarily closed
This health crisis is having a devastating impact on our clients, especially low-income women and their families. Inside homes, we know that the added stress amplifies domestic violence situations. As we work from our homes, we continue to provide essential services and support.
Our current ON SITE programs AVAILABLE for the community are:
Monday and Thursdays: Food Pantry for Immigrant Families 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM.
Wednesdays and Fridays: Fingerprinting for Family Reunification (By appointment only)
Our lines continue to be open all day every day. We are also working many of our other programs via phone, such as Immigration Legal Clinic, Financial Coaching and Housing applications. If you need any help, assistance or information about something please call us (415-431-1180) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

This year, as the nation marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote, Benjamin Moore, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation are celebrating this historic milestone with a new program focused on the preservation of sites in the U.S. where women from all walks of life have made history. We are so excited to announce The Women’s Building as one of those sites, and we’re very happy our organization is recognized as trailblazers in the role of women and their impact on U.S. history. Our colorful mural façade depicts the power and contributions of women throughout history and the world. This year-long project will enhance the grand staircase that showcases the building’s colorful mural as it makes its way from outside, into the heart of the building.
The Women’s Building stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter and other anti-racists groups that are demanding justice for George Floyd and countless other black lives that have been taken at the hands of police. Our hearts are with the families and communities of those killed by systematic racism that has plagued the black community for centuries and is still prevalent in all areas of society today.
The recent pandemic has highlighted the other impacts that are continuing the pattern of these structural disadvantages. In order to make progress toward eliminating these disparities, we must recognize and dismantle the ways that systematic racism has created economic, political, and social inequality.
As an organization that focuses on women and immigrant empowerment, we know that there is no gender equality without racial equality, there are no rights for immigrants without rights for the black community, there are no LGBTQ rights without black rights and the list continues to all people who are marginalized in our communities.
We encourage all people to learn more and engage in anti-racism. We support the multitude of talents that each individual can bring to a more just and livable society for all. Here are some great women-led organization you can support in the fight:
The Women’s Building is dedicated to helping protect the health and safety of our clients, volunteers, staff, and community.

This health crisis is having a devastating impact on our clients, especially low-income women and their families. So many of our clients work in the service industry and hourly jobs, and their income has stopped because businesses have closed. Inside homes we know that the added stress amplifies domestic violence situations. Given the public health restrictions, we are committed to providing the best service and support as possible. We need your support today!
The Women’s Building is committed to being there for women and families both now and after the crisis has calmed.
Donate today to keep The Women’s Building strong and stable. Any amount will make a difference.
