Our mission is to provide local women with skills development, links to resources, and connection with each other that enable improved quality of life and a strengthened community.
Our vision is of a responsive, inclusive community where every woman has access to the resources she needs to sustain the life she wants.
WCI's integrative model is an important innovation in services to women affected by conflict and poverty. A Center
Safety: A place of refuge restores hope. Women living in violent environments need the respite of a safe haven to focus on new directions.
Access: Programs provide access to integrated resources. Women's basic needs - for improved livelihoods, education, health and protection from violence – are interrelated.
Support: A meeting place fosters mutual support. Women united in groups advance with more confidence and strength than isolated women.
Ownership: A place of belonging builds a sense of ownership. Members are mentored to manage their own Centers within three years.
