Partner With WHW

Inspire hope and transfer knowledge!

A very felt impact of COVID-19 is the closure of our physical site and migration to an online delivery format. While we embrace this new way, we owe a depth of gratitude to scores of volunteers who daily and weekly devoted their time with faithful, in-person delivery of our programs. Their talent and heart is unmatched, yet for adept management of our new reality, we are working with groups versus individuals at this time. Should we increase our capacity, we’ll explore what makes sense to activate.

If you are part of a group (community or corporate) and looking to give back, we invite you to serve job seekers as a partner. Hands-on training will ensure you are well-prepared to assist job seekers in need. This experience is a crucial and very rewarding part of our employment readiness program. Don’t hesitate and partner with WHW!

InKind Donation

Make an in-kind donation to help WHW provide services to job seekers that would otherwise be unaffordable or that frees up resources to be spent on something else.

Clothing Drive

Hold a clothing drive to provide apparel and accessories to job seekers for interviews or for work and to support WHW’s social enterprise, Deja New Retail Store.
