About Us

Women In Need of the Ozarks has been assisting struggling working women since 2003. We are a not-for-profit organization designed to improve our local community by providing Women In Need the opportunity to enhance their self-esteem. WIN fills the gaps that other agencies provide too slowly – or not at all for many women. We pledge to provide resources necessary to enable Women In Need to become women of strength, and provide reinforcement as they develop the qualities of compassion, professionalism, and motivation.
