Originally a derelict former funeral home building, the two-story south wing of the new facility was rehabilitated to accommodate private offices and meeting rooms. The new west wing provides a larger communal conference room on the ground floor and job-training seminar rooms on the second floor. Along with eight-foot garden walls to the east and north, the wings envelope a contemplative garden space, reinforcing the character of the space as one of refuge.

A place for women to come together and work on empowering each other.
