What We Do

Women's Resource Center helps women discover their strengths and talents while overcoming barriers to employment and economic independence. We provide gender-specific assistance so they can break the cycle of poverty through meaningful employment.

We offer programs that focus on low-income single mothers, women who are justice-involved, unemployed and underemployed women who face challenges in the workplace. Specifically, our services include career exploration, employability and life skills, education/training assistance, mentoring and more. We work in collaboration with each woman to create a  personalized plan of  action to help her move forward in her professional and personal life.
