Women's Link

Women's Link

 

In 1988, a group of active women on the Lorain County Community College Campus created Women’s Link. 

“The original group,” said Women’s Link Coordinator Tracey Maxwell, “recognized the need for a special place for women on campus in need of direction with information and resources that could help with the little bumps or barriers along the road to higher education.”    Those “bumps” include issues like transportation, healthcare, childcare, housing, food and clothing.  “Anything they need,” said Maxwell, “we can help find resources for them.”

 

Women’s Link is an information referral resource at LCCC.  Its purpose is to assist people, both women and men, who are interested in pursuing higher education at LCCC or the University Partnership.   “We link people to resources that exist both here on campus and out in the community,” said Maxwell.  Women’s Link can help assist with emergency loan programs, offer a group of professionals for special services, and a staff counselor on campus twice a week.

 

Women’s Link was primarily created as a student support service for people enrolled or planning to become enrolled at LCCC.  But, “we also provide our services,” added Maxwell, “to the community in general and we have a lot that call.”  Women’s Link serves 5,000 people each year.   Women’s Link serves as an office of LCCC.

 

The services are free and confidential.  “I think,” said Maxwell, “people are naturally reluctant to ask for help.  But we offer a place where people can come and they are not going to be judged by their situation.  They can get the help they need to make them more successful here.”

 

Women’s Link has an open door policy.  Appointments are also available.  “I hope that everyone would feel welcome at Women’s Link and come seek us out if they need help or just don’t know where to turn,” said Maxwell.

 

You can contact Women’s Link by calling 440-366-4035 or you stop by the campus office in the Bass Library, room LC132H.  That room is located between financial and career services and is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm and until 6:00 pm on Thursdays.  Or, you can email at womenslink@lorainccc.edu
