Women Helping Women (WHW) is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to help individuals get and keep a good job.

As a community nucleus for 27 years, we have transformed and boosted the economic footing of thousands with quality job readiness programs and services. We are in the people business and are resolute in our commitment to foster real change.


We envision a day when every person who wants to work enjoys gainful employment.

Core Values

It’s not just about what we do, but how we do it. Our core values guide us in empowering employment success for those we serve. We strive to distinguish ourselves as trusted and impactful, differentiated by strategic, collaborative and innovative principles in action.

Trusted: We do what’s right with transparency.

Impactful: We make decisions that lead to employment.

Strategic: We focus our energy and resources on a common goal.

Collaborative: We leverage the strengths of our partnerships.

Innovative: We seek forward facing and cost conscious solutions.


We are workforce development professionals who help those facing real barriers navigate an uneven job landscape. We proudly enter the equity space to contribute to a more just and verdant society. Our intentional focus is serving women who are domestic abuse survivors, human trafficking victims, formerly incarcerated, foster youth and housing insecure. However, we also serve all job seekers and have very robust programs catering specifically to men and male youth. For 27 years, we have served job seekers in need at no charge, many of whom are referred by over 60 non-profits – achieving “true” wraparound services for the individuals involved. Our applied expertise allows those who have endured some of life’s harshest realities a new way forward where they own their self-sufficiency and economic mobility. Their upward trajectory and success is our great reward!


“I always feel uplifted after a visit to WHW or after I attend an online workshop. The facilitators do a phenomenal job to not only deliver the content of the workshop, but also to include the participants in a collaborative experience. The instructors open a space where the participants can encourage each other and share insights. These are great confidence boosters!”


“WHW provides a vital service for those of us seeking reemployment in these uncertain times, and they do so with professionalism, respect, and aplomb.  I am so relieved and reassured –and blown away– that this wonderful resource and these great people exist!  I have attended workshops, trainings, and 1-on-1 coaching, and I am always impressed by both their beneficence and knowledge.  I am energized and hopeful after each interaction with them!”


“I just wanted to take the time and say Thank You! I appreciate it. I will go ahead and practice/implement the feedback that you have given me today during the mock interview. It is always a great learning experience to go through such practice interview sessions. Thank you for your time and valuable insights.”


“I would like to extend a personal thank you to WHW for my Apparel consultation. My new wardrobe looks great and I am ready for my interviews!”
