OUR MISSION

The Women’s Resource Center is dedicated to women of all generations by providing services which engage, educate, enrich and empower them through life’s transitions.

OUR VISION

To provide unique strategies and resources that provide our clients with the information, confidence and determination they need to meet her immediate needs and create hope for her future.

THE CENTERS

We entered a new era when both the Manatee County and Sarasota County WRC Boards of Directors voted unanimously to merge effective January 1, 2017. This merger strengthened our organization and enabled us to expand our programming with far-reaching impacts.

As we celebrate the merger’s one year anniversary, our team is better positioned to serve women from Parrish to Englewood, offering the tools she needs to be successful.  There are now three Women’s Resource Center locations, convenient from anywhere in our community.
