This year marks the 30th Pearl Anniversary of WERC, formerly known as the Albany Displaced Homemaker Center.  The symbol for a 30th Anniversary is a pearl which signifies transformation and potential.  It begins as a grain of sand and is cultivated into something of great worth and beauty.  A Pearl also symbolizes wisdom acquired through experience as well as generosity, integrity, and loyalty.
At this year’s 30th Anniversary Awards Celebration, on October 2, 2018 at the Hilton Garden Inn Troy, WERC will recognize 30 Pearls of WERC Awardees along with two Pearls of Distinction for their contributions that have ensured WERC’s ongoing success.
