Women’s Programs

Here to Empower Women

At the Germantown Neighborhood Center, women are a priority. We help build self-respect and communication skills with programs for personal and family growth. We’re here for you!

Women’s Self Esteem

We want you to know how important you are! Led by dedicated, talented social work professionals, our Self Esteem groups encourage women to share their personal journey, learn from each other, and forge strategies to move beyond negative pasts. Women discover techniques to master life’s stressful situations through community building and mutual support, with guest speakers to enhance the educational process. Learn about childhood development, goal setting, biographical writing, reducing stress, obtaining a driver’s license, pursuing higher education and the home buying process. Children are welcome! Childcare and dinner provided.

Nurturing Yourself & Your Family

We care about women, their families and their goals! In this powerful group experience, women discuss how to navigate many of life’s issues, including parenting and struggling with recovery. Participants can express their concerns in a supportive and caring environment and learn healthy ways to handle challenging family situations. Childcare and dinner provided.

Emerge Boutique

We’re here to help you look your best! Our Emerge Boutique provides women with new and gently used casual and professional attire. The boutique offers a fashion consultant, private dressing rooms, clothing, and accessories. Available by appointment only. To choose your complete outfits, simply call us at 617-376-1384 to schedule a time to visit.

Women’s Wellness

We want you to feel great! The Women’s Wellness Program is dedicated to improving overall strength and flexibility. Whether it’s stretching, learning simple yoga poses, strength training or going for a brisk group walk, we get the body moving and in shape. It’s an amazing way to increase your energy and feel fantastic!

They never refuse open arms for me and my family. They don’t turn you away. They have a listening ear and a caring heart. You don’t have to be hungry. You’re not alone. For women that are being abused you can always speak to somebody. You can get help here. Anonymous
