EMPOWERING WOMEN ON THE SUNCOAST SINCE 1979

For over 35 years, the Women’s Resource Center has been dedicated to provide counseling, training and direction to women of all generations by encouraging, educating, enriching and empowering them through life’s transitions.

Today, WRC serves thousands of women and families in Manatee and Sarasota counties. Our vision is to offer unique strategies and resources that encourage self-confidence, determination and a sense of place, that not only will meet immediate needs, but also provide hope for the future.

OUR MISSION

To engage, educate, enrich and empower women of all generations.

OUR VISION

We envision a region where all women and families thrive.

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.
