What is WIN?

Women In Need (WIN) is a registered not-for-profit organization founded in March 2003 with the primary objective of helping working women in need. WIN is led by a board of 15 professional women, each with her own story of a friend, loved one, or herself once in need of some help. Win is also comprised of several fundraising volunteers called WINNERS, a group of men and women who meet regularly to brainstorm and plan various fundraising events.

WIN has helped women with paying bills, paying for services, buying a car, and writing letters to bill collectors.
