The Women’s Resource Center offers many programs and services remotely and on-demand at no cost.

We know that our clients have busy schedules and can’t always attend our webinars live, but just because you are busy, doesn’t mean you don’t want to take advantage of the information and services that are available to you.

We are now offering the recorded version of our webinars for free on YouTube. We will continue to add additional webinars, workshops and classes throughout the year. We want to hear from YOU! Is there a topic that you want to learn more about? Do you have follow up questions from a session you attended? Please email us at info@mywrc.org or give us a call at (941)256-9721.
