The GFWC Clearwater Community Women's Club (CCWC) is a member club of
the Florida Federation of Women's Clubs (FFWC) and the General Federation
of Women's Clubs (GFWC) one of the world's largest and oldest nonpartisan,
nondenominational woman's volunteer service organizations.
FFWC was organized in 1885 in Green Cove
Springs, Florida. FFWC has been active in the preservation
of the Everglades and building the first home at Hacienda Girls
Ranch in Melbourne, Florida. State headquarters for FFWC are
now in Lakeland, Florida.
GFWC was founded in 1890. The national

History and Resource Center are part of the facility. Past

The CCWC membership is divided into six special interest groups. The six
special interest groups are: the arts, conservation, education,
home life, international affairs and public issues. Each special
takes turns in planning a program for the monthly meetings, highlighting
the department's topic of interest.
