Women2Work

Searching for a job after an unexpected job loss, domestic violence transition, or re-entering the workforce after years of caring for other responsibilities can cause a great deal of stress and frustration.

Understanding this, Women’s Resource Center has developed the Women2Work workforce development program to offer job seeking assistance, counseling services, referral services, client outreach services, and other practical help to women facing this difficult transition. Women’s Resource Center advocates for women who have been victimized by offering mentoring, promoting opportunities to strengthen life skills, counseling, and opportunities to regain trust that is essential for transtition.

We provide professional clothing to women entering or re-entering the workforce. Also provided are personal and cleaning supplies (as needed from our Pantry), bus passes, gas cards, and phone cards to assist with the job search. The program is comprised of a 12 weeks of weekly session and check-ins, including face-to-face contact with our Community Support Coordinator and Counselors, as well as workshops to develop goal-setting and technical job search skills. In addition there are opportunities to strengthen job-search skills via WRC classes, programs, and collaborations with area agencies.

This service does have  the following eligibility requirements:

If you meet these requirements, please call (828) 322-6333 to make an appointment. New sessions start quarterly.
