The GFWC is the largest and oldest non-partisan, non-denominational, international service organization of volunteer women in the world.

Our Mission

DJWC’s reach extends beyond Dedham, as well, offering time, monetary donations, and donations of goods to social service organizations in the  Greater Boston area. It further offers its members social and educational growth through unity and fellowship.
