Women's Resource Center


The Women’s Resource Center is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit agency that has provided women (and men) with life skills training, career planning, and educational scholarships in Manatee & Sarasota Counties for over 35 years. We assist thousands of women in creating independent lifestyles by identifying problems, enrolling them in programs, and connecting them to appropriate resources they need.

WRC is dedicated to providing direction to women of all generations by inspiring, educating, and supporting them through life’s transitions. Each month, more than 250 women arrive at the door of the Women’s Resource Center seeking help. Just like all of us have experienced at one time or another, they have reached one of life’s turning points and come to us seeking a fresh start. Whether coping with difficult family situations, concerned about finances, or simply seeking opportunities for personal growth – we are here to help on your personal journey.
