Welcome to the Women's Resource Center!

Our Mission
Through the efforts of the Central Florida Women's Resource Center, Central Florida will be a community in which women of all ages flourish.

                                                          


The Central Florida Women's Resource Center - WRC   has been empowering women since 1984. WRC achieves this in the following ways.
  • Supports our community by recognizing the power of women celebrating women's achievements;
  • Connecting with other women's organizations;
  • Identifying, impacting and supporting women's social, educational, health, political, economic, spiritual and artistic issues.


WRC News: Clothesline Project, Thursday, March 13, 2014

 

The    Central Florida Women’s Resource (WRC) is once again

          sponsoring the Clothesline Project and this year’s display will

          be on March 13th during the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event benefiting Harbor House. 

          

       . You can find us behind Wall Street Plaza in front of the Orlando History Center at the end of the walk. The walk begins at 5:00pm at the Orange County Courthouse west entrance courtyard.

          

       EEach year T-shirts are displayed on clotheslines at

          various locations, each shirt giving silent testimony to a woman

          who has been a victim of violence. It is a vehicle for women

          affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a

          shirt. We then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by

          others as testimony to the problem of violence against women.

          The purpose of the project is four-fold:

     To bear witness to survivors and victims of domestic violence.

     To help with the healing process for people who have lost a loved

         one or are survivors.

     To educate, document, and raise society's awareness of the issue.

     To provide a nationwide network of support, encouragement and

          information for other communities starting their own Clothesline

          Projects. Please join us to pay tribute to those women who have

          either been a victim or lost their lives due to violence.
