Employment and Business Success provides assistance to anyone seeking a new job, scholarships for further education or improved employment opportunities. The program offers one-on-one career counseling sessions, tips for resume writing, job search strategies, employment support groups and a career center with available computers and resources.


The WRC experience begins with your first telephone call, but the plan for help or change starts when you come to one of our office locations in person to meet with one of our valued Peer Resource Advisors! Caring and non-judgmental Peer Resource Advisors are volunteers trained in active listening. They refer clients to services and programs within the WRC, as well as to other community agencies – all within a confidential environment. Peer Resource Advisors are extremely knowledgeable in the resources available in our community.


A variety of programs are offered, including yoga, motivational speakers, social events, financial, legal, counseling, computer classes, and much more. See our Program Calendar (link above) for more information on the programs currently being offered through the Women’s Resource Center.
