Mission Statement

Women's Rights Information Center, a community based nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, was established in 1973 in response to the needs of women caught up in a changing society. The Center believes in helping women to help themselves by providing a variety of informational, educational, and practical life-enhancing programs in a positive and supportive environment. Our mission is to help women learn and develop the skills they need to move toward economic self-sufficiency in order to provide for themselves and their families.
