• Community collaboration and inclusion

    Helping Women Win Inc. is a 501(c)(3) public charity providing housing assistance and other support to underserved women and girls affected by violence.

  • What We Do

    Helping Women Win exists to improve the response to women and girls experiencing violence whose access to traditional assistance is affected by perceived or actual age, race, ethnicity, immigration status, gender identity, sexual orientation, veteran status, or ability through advocacy, counseling, education, shelter, and support.

    Advocacy

    Helping Women Win promotes a coordinated community response to violence for all survivors now matter how they identify. We develop community partnerships to sustain legal referrals and aid, as well as, temporary, transitional, and permanent housing assistance for survivors of dating, domestic, and sexual violence (DDSV), stalking, human trafficking, and other gender-based violence. Headquartered in Lawton, Oklahoma, we connect survivors in need to an affirming network of care within Comanche County and beyond.

    Counseling

    We can assist in initiating individual, couples, group, family, or peer counseling services as requested to help guide participants in our programs through challenging situations. If you are interested in meeting with other survivors, you are welcome to join our group for women survivors of violence in Comanche County. Please stop by our office for more information on the date and location of the group. We welcome everyone affected by violence in our community to join together in taking a step towards well-being. No one is refused.

    Education

    We create educational opportunities for underserved youth and adults affected by violence. Helping Women Win wants to ensure that every child has the chance to explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), as well as, art in a positive environment with community members dedicated to the personal growth and development of our youth. Additional opportunities for youth and adults to have pro-social involvement and gain awareness are available through workshops, lectures, conferences, and other multi-cultural events throughout the year.

    Support

    Helping Women Win Inc. is a survivor-led organization creating culturally-competent programs and services for underserved survivors of violence. We understand the lasting effects of violence on an individual’s life and are available to help survivors reclaim their lives beyond helpline safety planning. Helping Women Win is creating a safe space to build community and distribute resources while collaborating with community organizations to ensure access and equity for all. We also provide free presentations to businesses, schools, community organizations, and other groups on issues affecting underserved and at-risk women and girls of Comanche County.

  • Helping Women Win values diversity, collaboration, inclusion, and trust.

    Our work amplifies voices of individuals in the community that are traditionally unheard and unrepresented. We offer a safe, welcoming environment that allows women and girls to create and engage in our communities. We invest in and support women leaders as community assets. We believe in their power to collaborate and innovate. Helping Women Win is committed to ensuring accountability, transparency, and sustainability. Our actions reflect our commitment to utilizing and reserving community resources while combating poverty, community deterioration and juvenile delinquency.
