Womanspace is a unique organization that transforms lives, giving women the confidence and support they need to become impactful leaders. For 45 years, Womanspace has provided programming in the creative arts, holistic health, self-development and social activism for women of diverse socio-economic backgrounds.

In October, Womanspace facilitated a transformational retreat weekend for survivors of domestic violence, blending creativity, interpersonal sharing, trust and support. The retreat strengthened participants and led to healing and empowerment. In March, Womanspace recruited 200 women to sew facemasks at home to help control the spread of the Covid-10 virus locally. Through those efforts, Womanspace was able to distribute 13,355 masks throughout the Rockford area to health care workers and others on the frontlines at a time when they were critically needed. This is a perfect example of why it is important to have an organization uniquely positioned to mobilize women. Women will often step up selflessly in times of need to benefit the community as a whole. Empowering women is integral to creating a healthy, thriving society.

Now, during the COVID-19 crisis, the intrinsic value of the vital work Womanspace does to aid women in becoming engaged citizens is more apparent than ever. But, like many organizations, its economic stability has been shaken due to the ramifications of the virus. Auctioning-in-Place for Womanspace will be a substantial help.
