Giving Society

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the WRC is to promote the self-reliance of women by assessing needs, providing services and acting as a gateway to community resources. In seeking solutions for unmet needs, the WRC provides strategic leadership through community partnerships and collaboration. 

 

 

WHO ARE VISIONARY GEMS?

Visionary Gems are women and men who believe in the mission of the Women’s Resource Center and commit to sustained financial support of the programs, goals and vision of empowerment for the continued educational and economic strength of women in and around Greensboro.

Programs and Services

Gateway to Community Services

We provide an information kiosk featuring local agencies that offer services for the many needs of women in our community. Bulletin boards list jobs, local events and other opportunities and announcements of interest to women. Computers with internet access are available on a limited time basis.

Community Resource Counseling

Community Resource Specialists offer support, problem solving, goal setting and referral information. Women receive 50-minute appointments with a trained Resource Specialist to help clarify objectives and receive assistance in accessing community resources to meet their specific needs.

Women To Work

The Women to Work Program offers a unique opportunity to be in a women-only educational setting that allows clients to build self-confidence while filling their employability tool kit. Offered in both group settings and one-on-one sessions, Women to Work covers career assessments, transferring home skills to marketable skills, resume development, interviewing techniques, goal setting, networking and much more. Open to all job seekers from first-time employed to those needing to upgrade their skills for more competitive wages, participants have access to employers and Human Resource professionals from area businesses along with placement case-management during the job search and beyond.

Community Education Workshops & Support Groups

WRC provides educational opportunities on topics related to financial, physical, emotional and relationship health, facilitated by community partners and professionals. This provides women with information and support to help enrich and empower their lives, while increasing their capacity to care for themselves and their families.

Free Attorney Hotline & Legal Information Services

Licensed attorneys, in around 20 areas of law, volunteer to assist community women in making well-informed decisions based on clear knowledge of their legal rights and responsibilities as they move through life transitions. Our Legal Workshops offer uninterrupted time with a licensed attorney, in a group setting, to discuss topics around family law, landlord/tenant issues, debt/credit repair and civil issues.
