I have had the honor to be involved with WWIN since the early 1990's. The organization helps low-income women with education and healthcare needs. I am continually impressed with the effectiveness of the organization in helping the WWIN clients and their families improve their lives. These women are truly grateful for the support and have become productive members of their society. I plan to continue to be involved in the organization for as long as possible.

I am not a WWIN client, but do know women that have been served by a WWIN grant.

I was first invited to a WWIN luncheon by a neighbor. The WWIN story and mission immediately touched my heart. The generosity of the founder Julia Pritt and her reasons for founding and continuing to support WWIN. And the many compelling stories of the clients and their families - how their lives have been changed.

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

I've met clients personally,heard from them in letters and the WWIN Facebook page. And I've heard from their children about how changing their Mother's life changed the lives of the family. And the organization is well run - an important criteria for me.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

professional, motivated, passionate. The ED comes from a successful business career and it shows in the way the org is run.

I've been volunteering with WWIN since 1998, and I now sit on the Board of Directors. WWIN is near and dear to my heart because of all the good it does in our community. The mission of the organization is so effectively carried out, and with such care and understanding. Allowing our clients to choose their own path towards a better life is so empowering. Whether choosing a doctor, counselor or educational track, our clients are making decisions for themselves instead of being told what to do and how to do it. Allowing them that freedom of choice shows a level of faith, confidence and respect that just isn't present with so many other social service agencies. WWIN is an organization like no other, and my affiliation with it is one of the things in my life of which I am the most proud.

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

I have seen the thank you letters that we receive from our clients, which often include details about the positive changes they have made because of the grants they have received, and I have volunteered alongside former clients who now volunteer.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with the staff. They are all so dedicated and such a loving group of people. I feel very at home there.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

address the needs of so many women who are struggling, and in turn improve their lives and the lives of their children and families which creates a stronger community overall.
