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 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 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.
