Making Dreams Come True

Women’s Resource Center is committed to maximizing the value of every contribution, whether that be financial, in-kind sharing of skills, or useful items for our Working Women’s Clothing Closet. Every single donation moves a woman in our community closer to her dream of a job that she can be proud of and a paycheck that will pay her bills. It moves her and her children closer to a future that was once only a dream. Your investment in the women we serve is also an investment in the lives of her children and their ability to break the cycle of poverty that otherwise may have bound them. 

Nearly 90% of every dollar received by Women's Resource Center is channeled right into programs and support to help unemployed and underemployed women prepare for and seek meaningful employment.  In 2016, 85% of those in our intensive programs that were looking for work secured employment. 
We consider our work to be a solid investment right back into the West Michigan community.  Our services ripple outward and positively impacted 512 children living with the women we serve. Thank you for helping to make that happen and for your continued commitment.
