About Women In Need Ministries
Women In Need (WIN) is a non-profit organization located in Willowick, Ohio. We are advocates for victims and survivors that have been affected by domestic violence. The organization was formed in 2016 by our founder, Doniella Ligon, a survivor herself, who saw the need for this life-changing program. The mission of this ministry is to go to safe homes and local shelters to provide the necessary tools to empower and improve the quality of life for each woman.
There are statistics that show that one out of four (1 out of 4) women the United States experience violence from an intimate partner. These unhealthy relationships include domestic abuse, sexual assault, verbal and emotional abuse, coercion, and stalking. The WIN organization has formed local partnerships with other organizations that provide education, safe spaces, spiritual and professional counseling for victims of domestic violence.
Our Mission & Vision
Our mission is to provide hope and help for people that are in transition of their lives. Meeting some basic needs and empowering them to WIN! The vision of WIN is to provide supportive services for women who are battered, homeless, and who are in transition in their lives. Our primary focus is to provide basic necessities that include personal development training, undergarments, toiletries, and housing. We believe once the basic needs are met, then these women will begin to transform into productive citizens within their family, workplace, and their community.
Our goal is to reassure and instill in every woman that any kind of abuse;
is never her fault, and that help is readily available to these courageous individuals.

Women In Need wants to see women WIN Through our WIN 500 campaign “Sister Undercover”. The WIN 500 Campaign is one of our primary services for women; the campaign provides new undergarments and toiletries to domestic violence shelters, safe houses, and women who are in transition in their life who may need additional support. We aim to help 500+ women each year 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. 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. In partnership with organizations throughout the community, the undergarments we collect are distributed to women in need in your local communities.
Have you been a victim of domestic violence? Are you in need of help or assistance? We have assembled resources to help you immediately and in the event that you are transitioning into your new life in freedom.
We are in need of corporate and community partners to help us push our mission forward. Our goal is to help survivors of abuse get back on their feet & give them a quality of care and compassion that will help them transition from survival to success.
We aim to help 500+ domestic survivors yearly. 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.
