About WRC: Since 1977, WRC has been a listening ear, a helping hand and, in some cases, a lifeline to individuals experiencing domestic violence. Its community-based work has helped women, men, children and families achieve physical, mental, emotional and financial safety.
Now, over 40 years later, with an annual operating budget of over $2 million, a staff of 27 and an active ten-member board of directors, WRC provides a comprehensive array of advocacy, support, shelter and housing, information, referral and follow-up services to survivors of domestic violence and persons at-risk for domestic violence. Specifically, WRC operates the following programs and initiatives:
- 24-hour helpline
- Shelter serving up to 13 adults and children
- Transitional housing program with 10 apartments in three East Bay communities (Bristol, Tiverton and Warren)
- Drop-in center
- Court advocacy program
- Family Violence Option Advocacy Program for clients of the Rhode Island Department of Human Services
- Law enforcement advocacy program
- The Newport Health Equity Zone (HEZ)
- Counseling program with licensed practitioners providing individual services
- Support groups
Of particular note, WRC is among a small cohort of organizations nationally that are engaging in health equity work as a domestic violence prevention strategy. We are recognized leaders in the development of this work, and have been invited to present at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Our team has had the privilege of training domestic violence program staff members in other states as they begin to adopt evidence-informed prevention practice.
WRC operates from three principal locations: Downtown Newport, at 114 Touro St., in Warren, at 624 Main St. and at the Florence Gray Center, in Newport’s North End, where our prevention team is housed.
