Groups


All groups that meet at Women’s Resource Center in Hickory, NC are free, confidential, and available to women throughout Catawba, Burke, Caldwell and Alexander counties. Details are available in the WRC Events Calendar or by calling the front desk.

Our groups include:

New women's discussion group  at WRC!

Women Sharing Wisdom will provide older women with a safe place to share, explore possibilities, and find creative solutions to the difficulties of aging. Women face a variety of challenges as they move into their older decades. Many feel isolated and lack a place to have meaningful discussions and receive support for the issues they face.

 The discussion group is facilitated by Linda Weldon, and meetings are held at Women’s Resource Center on the 2nd Thursdays of each month from 2:00-3:15 pm.

For more information call the Center at 828.322.6333
