The Women's Center

The Women’s Center assists women experiencing major transitions, with focus especially on displaced homemakers -- women who are separated, divorced, widowed, or living with a disabled spouse or partner.

Located in a warm, confidential setting, the Women’s Center works with women in transition to help them gain personal and economic self-sufficiency. The commitment to helping women reach their goals is achieved through job readiness training, education, networking, outreach and referrals to other agency services as needed.

Services are free to women who qualify as displaced homemakers.
