Update from WRC on Coronavirus


We hope you are well and safe. Our first priority at Women’s Resource Center is the safety and well-being of our participants, staff, volunteers, and community partners.

Although WRC has suspended all on-site programming, our office has reopened. We are closely following CDC guidelines and have put procedures in place to protect staff and guests.

We will continue to offer coaching and mentor appointments and training opportunities virtually. Our team remains ready and dedicated to serve women who are in crisis or who are seeking employment. Please call 616-458-5443 for support or questions on in-person appointment protocols.


To abide by safety precautions, clothing donations are now accepted by appointment only. We will not accept donations without an appointment. We’ll also ask you to complete a pre-screen phone call before arriving. Please click here to view all clothing donation procedures.


We truly appreciate you supporting WRC and the women we are honored to serve!

Our Chief Executive Officer, Sandra Gaddy, has accepted the leadership role at Grand Rapids Community Foundation. Sandra has been instrumental to the revitalization of WRC in her seven years of service. From expansion of services provided to women in need, to the organization’s capital campaign and new building, she has guided us with passion and professionalism. We wish Sandra well in her new position.

We have already initiated our search for a new Chief Executive Officer. During this transition period, the Executive Committee of our board has asked our Program Director, Michelle Bryk, and Director of Development & Communications, Tatum Hawkins, to manage day-to-day operations at WRC. The Executive Committee will handle administrative and executive level issues. Any questions or issues should be addressed to Michelle, Tatum or me.

Though transitions can be challenging, our commitment to our mission is unwavering. The services and counsel we deliver to women in need will continue without interruption.
