June 2016, W.I.N. set out on a mission to make a difference in the lives of women in battered and homeless shelters by collecting new undergarments and toiletries.

We strive to eradicate the embargoing, esteem-deflating stigma that is arrived when we do not have the basic items needed. Imagine if you didn’t have that security. And let’s face it, if a woman has problems with food and shelter, the last thing she’s going to indulge in is a proper fitting undergarment for herself, even though it’s a necessary for a psychological and emotional boost.

W.I.N. (Women in Need) is a ministry that invests in the social and emotional well-being of women. Founded by Lady Doniella Ligon, W.I.N. was launched to provide NEW undergarments and toiletries to women that are homeless and/or in domestic violence shelters as well as those that have been affected by similar circumstances.

Did you know?

  • Did you know that bras are typically the least donated and most needed items for women who are homeless or victims of domestic violence?
  • Did you know that more than 75% of women do not wear the proper size bra?
  • Did you know that when women arrive at a shelter, they are wearing their entire wardrobe?  They are dependent upon donated items to get back on their feet.
  • Did you know that victims often rush out of traumatic situations and relationships with just the clothes on their backs? They sometimes do not have the privilege of grabbing their belongings; and if they do, undergarments are often left behind.
  • Did you know that bras are the most needed, yet least donated clothing item for women?

Women In Need wants to see women WIN Through our W.I.N. 500 campaign “Sister Undercover”. We aim to help 500+ women who have been a victim of domestic violence over the next five years.  We want to be the voice for the families who have endured abuse from someone who claimed to love them. Your donation will support our efforts to ensure that every woman has the right “garments” for her new beginnings.

In partnership with organizations throughout the community, the undergarments we collect are distributed to women in need in your local communities.

WIN is a Tax Deductible 501(c3) Non-profit organization.
