Welcome to WERC

WERC is a private, not-for-profit organization that works to advance women's success in the workplace by building their economic and personal independence.

Since 1988, WERC has provided quality workforce development services to over 6,400 women from both Albany and Rensselaer Counties who have lost their source of income upon the death, divorce, separation, disability, or dislocation of a spouse or who are single mothers.
