HOUSING RESOURCES

The Women's Resource Center Houston understands this great need which is before every community leader who have been submitted a request for assistance on this matter. Providing shelter for the women with children is our Top Priority! We have to be creative in finding ways to fund this great project! We can not do this alone. It will take the Government and local community leaders to assist as well as everyone else to help share their resources to providing food and shelter to parents who have no funding to sustain their everyday life. The Women's Resource Center will also provide training for parents to get back to work with new skills in the marketplace to assist them on finding work in the local community or starting their own business.
