Non-Profit Profile: Wellspring Women's Center

This year is off to a wonderful start for young professionals all over Sacramento. Local businesses are seeking young innovative leaders to provide executive insight, leadership, and new ideas.

Are you that person? If so, you could be exactly one of our region’s most successful non-profit’s next board member candidate. Wellsprings Women’s Center is seeking driven YP’s to join their Board of Directors.

Take the leap to broaden your knowledge, take charge of your career, enhance your network, and give back to the community.

Wellspring Women’s Center is a non-profit organization. It's dining room is painted a rosy pink with peace-bringing paper cranes suspended from its ceiling. Though smiling faces are abundant, tears are shed here, too. This is a setting for the magic of radical acceptance. The women and children who frequent the drop-in breakfast center are referred to as guests, cherished and honored by the center volunteers and employees. They may be low-income, homeless or isolated, but, like everyone they seek love and acceptance.

If you are a YP that is driven by how Wellspring Women’s Center gives back to the community through children’s activities, safety net services, and a women’s wellness program, this is the organization for you. Wellspring Women’s Center board members are the fiduciaries who steer the organization toward a sustainable future by adopting sound, ethical, legal governance and financial management policies as well as by making sure there are adequate resources to advance its mission.
