We are diverse women from different races, ethnicities, identities, ages, nationalities and backgrounds bringing communities together by bringing women together to address our common concerns. We tackle the poverty and food insecurity of women and children who are 70% of the poor in Philadelphia. A non-profit organization since 1985, we are committed to addressing the importance and value of all women’s contributions to the economy and society including that of essential caregiving.
For 22 years Women in Dialogue has run the Crossroads Women’s Center in a small storefront on Maplewood Mall in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia. We purchased a much larger space on Wayne Avenue in lower Germantown that needs renovation so we can expand our work. Now more than ever, a space is needed where those whose survival and rights are under threat can come together across divisions to protect one another and build the movement for a more caring world.
We are putting huge efforts into gathering pro bono professional advice and fundraising to develop our new space on Wayne Ave into a welcoming, accessible, environmentally and community friendly space. But all the goodwill and volunteer effort will not pay for everything. We need your financial help for renovations estimated at over $300,000.
