Mission Statement

The Martinez Street Women's Center is committed to developing a community space that provides information and services which support the active participation of women and girls in the pursuit of their own physical, emotional, and social well-being. The goal of the Martinez Steet Women's Center is to serve as a resource center providing education, referrals, advocacy, and health outreach to women, their partners, and their families. Our target population is women and girls who face barriers accessing health care.

Description

We currently have two main programs: Girl World and the Promotoras. Girl World is an after-school and summer program for girls ages 10 to 14. In this program, we work to nurture the growth and development of girls through a comprehensive approach that focuses on communication, creativity, self-esteem, healthy sexuality, leadership, and building positive relationships. The Promotoras are a group of trained local women who are mobilized to spread grassroots health information programs to the southeastern San Antonio community. We also have a nutrition class for minority women, a lending library, and a referral service.
