The Programs & Services of the Women’s Resource Center

For almost 40 years in Sarasota and 30 years in Bradenton, WRC has been a place for women and families to turn to when they are looking for help, guidance or information. We will continue to be that place and we are here to answer questions, direct individuals to community resources and provide our services remotely.

WRC Remote Programs & Services

At the Women’s Resource Center, our utmost concern is the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, clients and community. News about Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) increases daily. It is important to respond to our community’s needs, especially as those needs evolve or change during this time.

Please note, due to COVID-19 all our centers are currently closed.
