Our Story and Who We Are

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



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 Shelter, the Rape Crisis Center, and the Satellite Office fill an urgent need. The WRC is the only organization providing these services in Cleveland County.

Crime against women 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.

There is no charge for receiving services at the Women’s Resource Center.
