The Women’s Center of Jacksonville offers no cost or affordable mental health counseling; adult and family literacy; breast cancer support and education; and information and referral assistance.
Whether you’re facing health, personal, domestic, or other issues, the Women’s Center of Jacksonville offers a variety of programs to help you manage the tough times. From our Bosom Buddies program offering support and education to breast cancer survivors to our Expanded Horizons education program preparing women for their GED or teaching them English as a Second Language, we strive to help you achieve your dreams through our support services.
Expanded Horizons is a gender-specific educational program designed to meet the needs of women through trained volunteer tutors, paid instructors, and ancillary support services. The program includes transportation assistance, children’s services, and life skills small groups.
A family literacy advocate provides case management to assist with removing barriers to reaching goals. Participants have access through cross referrals to the comprehensive, wrap around services of the Women’s Center.
We provide a variety of information and resources to women affected by breast cancer including free educational materials, mastectomy bras, wigs and prostheses at no charge.
