Women Helping Women Maui, helped my children and I learn a new way of life, a life without Domestic Violence. My children and I found love and support from the staff and we were provided with so much, they tried their hardest to help us get what we needed to move on and start our new lives. They were there when we needed to talk, to cry they kept us safe. The shelter was the first place we were able to sleep and live peacefully.

Women helping Women on Maui
is a Non profit organization that supports battered and abused women by providing a shelter for women and their children, a TRO office for restraining orders and hotline advocacy to women by phone. I have worked the hotline line for four years and heard the heart wrenching calls for help and taken pictures of women entering the shelter with harrowing bruised and wounds. WHW provides a safe haven for women by help[ing them get county services until they can become fully indepentdent in mind as well as body. Thousands of women each year would be without help and no place to go if WHW were to close its doors. With the County of Maui cutting grants to non-profits we have been forced to find other funds to keep our doors open. We need donors, sponsors, and women to take out a membership to help fund this organization to keep the doors open. Will you step up to the plate with a monetary donation? We are also trying to set up a resale store to help fund our programs, voluntering time, items for sale and montery donations in this area are needed also.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen women rebuild their self esteem and confidence, get a job and housing and go on to be self sustaining women who provide for there children in a happy home enviorment free from terror.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would start a membership drive because this is a non-profit to solicit funding from private sources to help maintain the shelter and other programs, and I would pay a grantwriter to solicit funding from private sources as well.

Thisnon-profit organization has helped women all over Maui with the shelter they provide for women and their children.
The staff is so dedicated to helping them they never turn away anyone.
They give with heart and soul, time and energy to write up restaining orders, fundraisers to get money for these women.
Sign waving on main streets when another women has been killed due to domestic violence.
I work as a relief advocate, so west Maui can have a office open a few days per week to counsel and write TRO's. I have been involved in several fund raisers over the years and contnue to volunteer with Women Helping Women because the word is getting out there in the community.
People openly talk about hope WHW has helped them or someone they know.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

By seeing women in the community start their lives over and regain their self worth. Most people on Maui island know about our organization and are vocal about how good it is.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give more money to the women working at the shelter and the TRO personel.
