Who we are

The Women’s Place and Resource Center (WPRC) is a post-crisis nonprofit organization designed to assist women in the process of spiritual, personal, and professional development. Participation begins with the application to join the 18-36 month program.

Selected participants receive services based on current living conditions, educational history, self-made goals, and overall need. Each participant will work to develop and reach self defined short-term and long-term goals.

The participants of the WPRC will become a positive influence in their life and the lives of others. The Women’s Place will work to restore the respect one shows to themselves and others while building the unity of our community.

The Women’s Place and Resource Center is a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.




The Women's Place and Resource Center (WPRC) is truly a dream in the making. I finished my Doctorate of Education from Edgewood College in May of 2015. When I walked across that stage as a single mom of three young kids (11, 9, 5), I realized what I had accomplished was nothing short of a miracle and blessing that needed to be shared. I was now a single mom with a BS in Nursing, MS in Nursing, MBA and a Doctorate in Education. I had been a nurse for over 13 years and a nursing educator for over 7 of those years (teaching RNs both 4yr and 2yr, LPNs, and CNAs). I realized at that moment how very fortunate I was and how "selfish" it would be not to share with other women looking for and in need of guidance, encouragement and compassionate assistance. Thus, I knew it was time to "Jump"! I decided to take that leap of Faith and begin the journey of building the WPRC. I knew in my heart, there are so many women of whom would benefit from my education, life, professional, personal and spiritual journey. I worked hard, made sacrifices and now have the 501(c)(3) status. Yes, a Public Charity. Therefore, one of my biggest pivotal moments was when I realized, it is always better to share. The knowledge gained is made better when you share it with others! That is the goal and purpose of the WPRC, helping women grow spiritually, personally and professionally. After working actively as a nurse for over 16 years (patient care and teaching), my passion for others continues to grow; however, the population focus has shifted just a bit!!
