Our Board of Directors

A Volunteer and Social Organization

The Coral Gables Woman's Club is a social and volunteer organization that represents a wide spectrum of women of all ages.

 

In existence since 1923, Coral Gables Woman’s Club is a 501c3 organization with a free children dental clinic on premise.

 

We are a diverse group of women, professional and homemakers, whose mission is to support and maintain our Coral Gables Children Dental Clinic, to provide volunteer services in various projects within the national and international communities and participate in club activities that promote health, finances, civic welfare and the arts and sciences.

 

Since 1939 the Coral Gables Woman's Club has been providing free dental care to children up to 18 years old, of low income families that do not qualify for any public funding.

Our Building - Two Distinct Wings

The Historic Coral Gables Woman's Club was constructed in 1936. A simple one story oolitic limestone building with a tiled roof was the results of the efforts primarily of Mrs. L. E. Langford. The city of Coral Gables donated the coral rock from the city owned quarry and the clubhouse was built on city owned property that was turned over to the Woman's Club twenty years after it was constructed.

 

The clubhouse was the first (WPA), Works Progress Administration project in Coral Gables. With the WPA artisans carved statues and mural paintings and for $10,000.00 the Woman's Club a historic building was constructed. What was once the Junior's side of the clubhouse was the original Coral Gables library. The building is listed as number 19 on the list of Historic Landmarks in Coral Gables. We now refer to this as the South Hall, 1009.
