Welcome to Women’s Resource Agency
We empower women and girls to attain and maintain personal self-sufficiency and economic independence. For more than 40 years, Women’s Resource Agency has been supporting women of the Pikes Peak region by providing the tools necessary for them to succeed in the workplace and in their personal development.
“How do I get out of this situation? How am I going to make it?” These are just a couple questions many women and girls ask themselves on a daily basis. They need resources, skills and motivation in order to provide for their basic needs. Women's Resource Agency has empowered women and girls to gain personal self-sufficiency and economic independence. If you believe in what we're doing, please join us in empowering women and girls in the Colorado Springs community. Your donation will help build self-esteem, as well as, life and career skills for WRA clients. You have the power to help women and girls discover answers to their questions that they face.
