Our Story

The Women's Resource Center Mission

Since 1975, The Women’s Resource Center in Norman, OK has been helping women live better lives. Over the years we have redefined our goals to meet the changing needs of the community.

Our primary work is to help people victimized by domestic and sexual violence. The Women’s Resource Center (WRC), the Shelter, and the Rape Crisis Center fill an urgent need in our community. The WRC is the only organization certified by the Office of the Attorney General providing these services in Cleveland County.

Gender based violence affects all of us. We believe that education is the first step toward prevention. Information will make people more sensitive to the needs of victims of violence, more willing to take a hard look at the causes of these crimes, and better able to find ways to prevent them.

We are dedicated to the belief that members of our community deserve to live in safety and without violence. Every day we work to make this a stronger possibility for the people we serve.

All services at The Women’s Resource Center are 100% free and confidential. We serve all genders. 

We believe that women have the right to live in safety, be treated with dignity, make choices and to hope.
