Background

The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) began in 1975 when five women placed an ad in The Suburban and Wayne Times calling for a meeting on women’s issues. Forty-five women attended the initial meeting, indicating a strong demand for an organization that was dedicated to the special needs of women. The original group established three goals that remain in place to this day:  to provide information and referral services to women & families; to offer supportive programming and workshops; and to maintain a physical location from which to serve the greater Philadelphia community.
