Have you recently moved here, changed jobs, or want to make new friends? Join us to foster camaraderie and support, and help you through transition.  Lunch Bunch meets at WRC for a quick discussion, then participants decide where they will go to buy lunch.  A different restaurant is chosen each time.  If you are interested in joining the Lunch Bunch, please call our Sarasota or Venice centers.

If you are interested in starting a Lunch Bunch in Manatee, please e-mail Info@mywrc.org.

Do you need someone to listen without judging, who has the tools to guide you to needed support? We have experienced Resource Advisors who help you prioritize your needs. They can refer you to the right community agencies, and/or recommend programs offered by the WRC that provide resources and information.

Please call for availability of appointments. Walk-ins are welcome!
