Mission Statement

Since 1993, Women Helping Women has focused on one thing...preparing people to secure good paying jobs. We guide individuals to pathways of possibility with proven programs and services provided at no charge. Facilitated employment readiness webinars, one-on-one job search assistance, resource sharing, professional apparel and supplemental tools have helped thousands of women, men and youth confidently navigate the job market maze with success.


We are workforce development professionals who help those facing real barriers navigate an uneven job landscape. We proudly enter the equity space to contribute to a more just and verdant society. Our intentional focus is serving women who are domestic abuse survivors, human trafficking victims, formerly incarcerated, foster youth and housing insecure. However, we also serve all job seekers and have very robust programs catering specifically to men and male youth. For 27 years, we have served job seekers in need at no charge, many of whom are referred by over 60 non-profits - achieving "true" wraparound services for the individuals involved. Our applied expertise allows those who have endured some of life’s harshest realities a new way forward where they own their self-sufficiency and economic mobility. Their upward trajectory and success is our great reward!

WHW is a great organization. As a volunteer I assisted women with their interview attire and working wardrobes. I also sorted through donations. I even purchased a few items to help the cause. If you love fashion and you know you want to help people, but you aren't sure how you can help, this is a great way.

I started as a volunteer at WHW and enjoyed it so much that I decided to make it my career! I believe in the mission and have seen how the efforts of all the volunteers at WHW really make a difference in the lives of the clients that WHW serves.
