WIN What I Need connects anyone who is struggling or homeless to free resources in 12 categories.
Currently available in Los Angeles County, CA and Mercer County ,NJ, WIN is free, easy to use, and designed to empower homeless, abused and resource-insecure youth, families and adults to find supportive services that will help them meet basic needs while building an independent life away from poverty, abuse and neglect.
Users can search for anything, from food pantries and homeless shelters, to free health services, educational resources and more. WIN users can also receive alerts through the app about job fairs and other community events, connect to live assistance hotlines through the “I Need Help Now” page and offer feedback about listed agencies.
In addition to serving homeless, abused and struggling youth, families and adults, WIN (What I Need) is a powerful referral tool that anyone can use to guide others who need help or supportive services.
The WIN app is provided in both English and Spanish and users can update their language choice anytime from their profile page within the app.
