The Women & Family Life Center celebrated its 20th year in 2010. Originally run from the basement at a local church, WFLC now conducts business from a historic home near the Guilford Green. Our facilities include administrative offices and program space in a converted 220 year-old home, as well as large program space in a beautifully converted barn. The facilities were purchased in 1999 through the generous support of individual donors in the community. WFLC begins as a community outreach center for women and children providing food and emergency shelter at the Peace & Justice Center at St. George Church in Guilford.
