About Women's Resource Center
The San Francisco Sheriff's Department Women's Resource Center provides gender-specific transitional services to help women overcome traumatic experiences that can lead to unemployment, substance abuse, poverty, homelessness, and crime. Recognizing that crime hurts everyone, the WRC weaves principles of restorative justice into all of the services it offers. The funds from this event are dedicated to renovating the building to create an environment that will help women reclaim their lives.

The program focuses on the unique needs of women, providing evidence-based treatment that addresses mental illness, trauma, and addiction.
