Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan (WRCNM) remains committed to providing essential services to survivors of domestic abuse, sexual assault, child sexual assault, child abuse, stalking and harassment in accordance with public health recommendations and state/national guidelines as the COVID-19 situation evolves.

WRCNM Executive Director Gail Kloss said, “Our priority is the safety, well-being and needs of both survivors and our staff.”
