As communities within our state and across the country prepare for and respond to the COVid-19 outbreak, and with everyone’s health in mind, we feel it is our duty to the community to limit face to face interactions.

Therefore, the Putnam/Northern Westchester Women’s Resource Center is closing it's offices to the public, until such time that it is safe to open our door once again.


Staff will continue to be available by phone and e-mail from
10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday as well as, other times as scheduled. 


The hotline remains available to anyone in need, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 


If you are in need of immediate advocacy or shelter, please call the hotline at 845-628-2166 so we can assist you immediately. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

WRC Vision

The Putnam/No. Westchester Women’s Resource Center envisions a united community assertively intolerant of all violence; a community that is educated in the intricate ways that power can be abused; a community that values all of its members and respects their rights and their diversity; a community where individuals are safe in their homes, in their work places, and on our streets; a community where children are safe in their schools, in their homes, and among their peers; a community where children are respected, valued and provided the support needed to become productive, fulfilled adults.


We envision a community that protects, values and enables all its citizens, regardless of gender, to develop their own voice and to reach their full potential; a community that values both women and men equally for their self assurance, inner strength and self respect; a community where all resources are equally available to both women and men of all ages.

We envision a community where women and men are working side-by-side to reach these goals; a community where law enforcement and the legal system promote the achievement of these goals; a community where the resources to attain these goals are available and accessible to all.
