Carlson 4 Community (C4C), created in 2005, is Carlson School of Management's leading student organization that supports local causes. Our mission is to promote volunteerism and community involvement both at the Carlson school and within the community in which the school resides. Our beneficiary this year is Women's Advocates, a St. Paul-based nonprofit organization.
Women's Advocates is a safe place where victims/survivors of all backgrounds and cultures can escape domestic violence and begin to heal. We offer shelter, meals, clothing, transportation, personal needs items, counseling, support, advocacy, referrals, crisis phone, and other basic services to women and their children daily. Today, Women's Advocates provides shelter and services to an average of 50 women and children daily, helps dozens of callers to the crisis line daily, and educates students and professionals about domestic abuse prevention and services.
