The WRC offers programs to engage, educate, enrich and empower. If you are at a turning point in your life, and unsure or unable to determine a direction, reach out us. As trained listeners, we can connect you with a program or service at the center or refer you to a non-profit community partner.

PEER RESOURCE ADVISING

Your WRC experience begins with a telephone call, but the plan for change begins when you meet one of our valued Peer Resource Advisors. Caring and non-judgmental Peer Resource Advisors are trained volunteers in active listening. Peer Resource Advisors are very knowledgeable in resources available in our community – all within a confidential environment.

EMPLOYMENT ADVISING

Employment and Business Success Advising provides assistance to anyone seeking a new job, scholarships for further education or improved employment opportunities. The program offers one-on-one career counseling sessions, tips for resume writing, job search strategies, employment support groups and a career center with available computers and resources.
