History of WRC
The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) began in 1975 when five women placed an ad in The Suburban and Wayne Times calling for a meeting on women’s issues. Forty-five women attended the initial meeting, indicating a strong demand for an organization that was dedicated to addressing the needs of women. Since that time, WRC has worked to help women utilize the educational, employment and financial opportunities made available to them through Title IX and similar legislation to create better lives for themselves and their children.
WRC’s mission is to assist women and girls to successfully navigate life transitions and to inspire others to do the same. By providing resources, tools and support for today, we provide hope for tomorrow.
The Women’s Resource Center does not discriminate in the provision of services on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, or ability.
WRC welcomes each person to bring their true and authentic self. We respect differences and invite each person’s unique perspectives in order to create an environment that is welcoming, collaborative, adaptive and culturally relevant.
