About Us

Thank you for visiting Helping WIN!

We are a 501(c)(3) not for profit charitable organization created to provide a safety net of emergency cash assistance to women battling poverty in Northeast Florida. The cash assistance is in the form of grants and never needs to be repaid. But, because we know that all women deserve to be treated with dignity, the grants are earned by service to the community or by participation in an appropriate training course. Helping WIN works with partner agencies to identify women who are showing potential in their fight against poverty, and helps them conquer roadblocks along the way. Grants are available for emergency needs in the areas of housing, utilities, transportation, education, and employment. Often, a small amount of cash assistance is all it takes to keep a woman on the path to financial security. We invite you to join us and help women in Northeast Florida WIN against poverty today!

Grants with Dignity is supported by a grant from the Women's Giving Alliance, an initiative of the Community Foundation for Northeast Florida.
