About Women's Resources of Monroe County

Women’s Resources (WR) is a private non-profit [501(c)(3)] tax-exempt corporation and has been a member of the United Way of Monroe County since 1980.

We are registered with the Pennsylvania Commission for Charitable Organizations and are funded as Monroe County’s designated sexual assault crisis center by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape and a Domestic Violence shelter by The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence. As a member organization of both coalitions, WR actively participates in state and national initiatives which impact on the lives of those we serve.

The agency currently employs 17 full- and part-time staff, and is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. A dedicated corps of volunteers provides direct services such as staffing the 24-hour hotline and facilitating support groups, as well as fundraising and outreach initiatives.

Women’s Resources provides services to all victims in our community, regardless of gender, age, race, sexual orientation, or religion.
