2017 – 2018 WBN Service Project

The Center For Women

Our 2017—2018 Service Project is The Center for Women which is located on Murray Avenue in Squirrel Hill.

The liaison for the WBN Service Project is Berni Bishop Pirollo (Pittsburgh City East Chapter). In addition, the Director of the Center For Women, Becky Abrams is also a WBN Member. Both ladies have created a calendar of ideas for all the chapters to review and discuss ways they can participate over the coming year.

We encourage you and your chapter members to peruse the organization’s website at www.centerforwomenpgh.org. There are ways that individuals from chapters can participate and volunteer – either by offering to create and host a workshop, to be a mentor to a CFW client or to provide job shadowing or an “internship” to a client. Information about programs and opportunities like these are on the website.

The Center For Women is going to kick off the year with 3 opportunities in July for you and/or your chapter members to come to the CFW in Squirrel Hill for a one-hour Meet and Greet and orientation. Learn about ways to get involved as an individual volunteer at the CFW through our Mentor, Internship, LAW and Women Helping Women programs.
