Welcome to The Women’s Center. Please check out our upcoming events!

Thanks to all who contributed to our annual Swing Into Spring Fundraiser. Thanks to you, we were able to raise a third of our yearly budget — and even exceed our goals.

Let’s figure this out together.

These are reassuring words when a family member, friend or trusted acquaintance is offering to help. But not everyone has somebody to turn to when things get tough.

Our Ann Arbor-based women’s resource center specializes in women-friendly services.  Our focus is on you as a person. We can help with:

We offer services on a sliding-fee basis for uninsured individuals or those who choose not to use their mental health benefits.

Are you looking for an extra layer of confidentiality? Have an impossibly high deductible? Can’t afford your co-pay? Used up your authorized number of sessions? Unable to find anyone who accepts straight Medicaid?  We can work with you!

If you choose to use your health insurance, Room to Talk, a practice located at The Women’s Center, is an accessible option.

We are committed to providing high-quality supportive services at affordable fees.  Our staff and volunteers make our environment safe, encouraging and beautiful.

Our services help women change their lives.

The Women’s Center is a major human service provider in the Washtenaw County area. Each year, we provide direct services to over 500 women and girls (and some men) which represent about 7,500 appointments.  Additionally, we assist an estimated 1,032 people who call for help in accessing community resources.

Our Guiding Principles


We believe that everyone wants the opportunity to shape their our own life stories. We offer opportunities for women to explore, challenge, and make decisions about their futures in an atmosphere of mutual respect.


We encourage intelligent, courageous, resilient, creative, and resourceful women to discover and amplify their inherent strengths.


We bring together women and resources to construct a continuum of support. Relationships nurture our desire to belong and promote an ongoing sense of integrity and well‐being.


We work with women to distinguish individual problems from systemic problems, and to carry out individual and social change. Each of us actively seeks skills and resources that enable us to adapt to a complex and changing world.
