WRS Donations & Testimonials

Women's Residential Services Donations
Thank you for considering a donation to Women's Residential Services. Your generous gift will help bring hope, help and healing for 100 women and their children annually.

First steps into recovering from chemical dependency and mental health issues are difficult for many clients. At WRS we try to supply things that a client does not have, therefore removing worry and helping her focus on the challenging tasks ahead in her life. We rely heavily on donations to give clients the basic needs.
