Women Helping Encouraging Women aka WHEW, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Non-profit Corporation serving the Greater Ohio community, and the Virgin Islands. We're committed to advocating for, and assisting Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Child Victim's.
WHEW emerged from a African-Caribbean woman born on the beautiful island of St. Thomas, Virgin Islands now residing in Toledo, OH. This woman, and her mother both are Domestic Violence, and Sexual Assault Victims. Some of what helped them move from Victims to Survivors was loved one's, peers, and love for music, and dancing! The organization itself have been in existence since 2017, but the Founder of WHEW, and her mother over the years have opened their hearts, and homes to other victims, and aspire to open a home one day for Victims, Survivors, and their child(ren). Currently WHEW organize drives during Hurricane season to help out the islands, Turkey giveaways, and have support groups online, and in person. They are assisted by their youth counterparts name T.I.K. Teens Inspiring Kids which was formed by the Founder's children to assist their peers. Her kids are frequently with her when out in the community volunteering, and giving back, from seeing their mother so active in helping others the kids one day approached their mother with the idea, and she happily assisted them in implementing T.I.K. They have assisted their Principal, and Toledo Police to safely return their peers that has run away by listening, and collecting necessary information. One of WHEW's biggest events that be inaugurated in June 2020 when the organization launches Glass City Caribbean Carnival. It will be a day of Fun, and Liberation in the City of Toledo, and we will need all the help we can get.
We'll work with your schedule.
