Programs & Services
The services offered by the Women's Place and Resource Center are included in our 18-36 month program. They are designed to meet each individual's needs for growth and development.
The Women's Place is a faith-based business providing spiritual guidance for coping with life's issues. Our belief is that women/mothers are capable of addressing and fixing a multitude of problems with basic needed skill sets. In reality, most families consist of a one-parent home and the family is too burdened to function adequately. The Women's Place goal is not to promote single-parent families, but to empower broken families with the knowledge and skills to live better and fuller lives.
The WPRC will assist in the overall pursuit and development of occupation, trade, profession, or vocation. The WPRC will provide this service through one-on-one, group sessions, and or partnerships with a variety of other non-profits. There are so many various careers that may require extensive education and training to many that require little preparation. Each participant will work with the WPRC to find what best meets their needs and life situation.
Promoting financial literacy with math skills will have a positive impact on these women and mother's personal and professional development. The money management classes are designed to teach women/mothers how to live within their means by creating and balancing budgets. The classes will instill principles and financial responsibility and accountability. The increase in the literacy rate will furthermore create an opportunity for better job choices for the women and our future generation.
COMPUTER SKILLS TRAINING
One of the goals of Women's Resource is to teach and assess basic computer concepts and skills so that women can use computer technology in everyday life. The Skills acquired will allow each participant to develop new social and economic opportunities for themselves, their families and their communities
HEALTH, HYGIENE AND FITNESS EDUCATION
