Please know that the isolation and stress resulting from the pandemic may increase the risk and severity of abuse. The WRC remains a safe haven for support, assistance, shelter, and counseling services. We encourage all to stay alert and share our resources to neighbors in need.

We value your help.

Now more than ever, individuals need our help. Some of our sources of funding and support have been disrupted. This includes the postponement of our Butterfly Ball, which is a primary source of needed fundraising. Please consider helping us to continue our work and meet the demand for our services. Your donation – in any amount – is appreciated by us and those we serve.
