FRIENDS OF WRC'S MISSION

The Mission of Friends of WRC is to make a positive difference in the lives of the children at WRC.

FRIENDS OF WRC ROLE

Established in 2006 “Friends of WRC” members enhance WRC’s ability to provide quality services and activities for the children residing within WRC’s Housing. We believe children are the silent victims of domestic violence. Our goal is to contribute to a sense of normalcy while they receive life changing services at WRC. We have supported close to 14,000 children and raised almost $140,000 as a result of the generosity of our supporters within the community. 

Please take a moment to appreciate what Friends of WRC is accomplishing.
