Welcome to Women’s Resource Center



“To my co-workers, clients, business associates and friends!

I am so happy to announce my retirement from Women’s Resource Center as their Executive Director.  Michelle Morgan, my co-worker and friend, is stepping into the roll of Interim Executive Director.  I am very excited for her.

I had originally planned to retire on August 1st, but have fallen ill with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.  This has been a rough ordeal.  So, with an extended recovery in my future, I have decided to step into retirement early.  I’m looking forward to better days ahead where I can enjoy and do the things I’ve always wanted to do.

Peace and love to all!!




The  staff and volunteers would like to thank Cindy for leading Women’s Resource Center with passion and dedication for the past ten years. We will miss her terribly, but wish her a happy and healthy retirement!



Life transitions can happen suddenly. When these changes occur, the impact can result in not knowing where to turn for help.

The Women’s Resource Center (WRC) offers assistance to women in Alexander, Burke, Caldwell and Catawba Counties. Women turn to us for many reasons:

Effective February 28, 2019, Women’s Resource will no longer be accepting donated clothing.  We are expanding our Emergency Pantry and outgrowing our space.  Please gift your clothing to other local charities that we will use as resources.  Thank you for your past donations which have helped many women “Dress for Success”.

Women’s Resource Center assists countless women and families in this region, offering help to those in need; affirmation to those in transition; encouragement to those seeking growth; hope to those who are searching; and empowerment to all who desire whole, healthy and vibrant lives.
