What We Do
Equipping women for success
Women’s Resource Center empowers women to become economically self-sufficient and improve their lives through employment, career development and personal growth.
We work with unemployed or underemployed women who want to find meaningful work to support themselves and their families.
Our services are designed and delivered to meet the needs of women.
Practical & relevant tools
Participants are invited to work in our self-help Business Center to conduct online job searches, work on digital job applications, update resumes, and develop computer skills. The Business Center includes desktops, a printer and fax. The business center is open during normal office hours.
Today’s job seekers are expected to have some basic Microsoft Office skills. Word and Excel are two of the most utilized MS programs. We offer small class sizes for our Word and Excel training. We also offer one on one computer tutoring for those who prefer individualized help.
Volunteer Resume Coaches help participants refine a resume and cover letter on a one on one basis. Available by appointment only.
The Business Boutique
When a participant is job ready, she can shop the Business Boutique for professional outfits appropriate for job interviewing. This support not only enhances her marketability, but also increases her self-confidence. By appointment only.
Our scholarships are available to help participants with costs associated with educational and/or training programs. Scholarships are offered to women actively participating in our intensive programs, who are attending or accepted to an accredited secondary learning institute, show financial need, and clearly articulate education and career goals.
