WIN (What I Need) connects users to 12 categories of free resources.
Users can search for anything from food pantries and homeless shelters, to free health services, educational resources, and more.
WIN What I Need is free, easy to use, and empowers homeless, abused, and resource-insecure youth, families, and adults to find services that will help them build an independent life.
More than a directory – WIN users can receive alerts about job fairs and other community events, offer feedback, and even search for homeless shelter beds available in real time. Users can also connect to live assistance hotlines through the “I Need Help Now” page.
In addition to serving homeless, abused, and vulnerable youth, families, and adults, WIN is a powerful referral tool supporting those serving individuals in need of immediate help or supportive services.
