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 28 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.
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 28 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!
