The Women In Need Foundation was established in Fall of 2009 to assist local domestic violence shelters by providing toiletries to victims. We have two primary goals: helping shelters and promoting awareness on our campus, and we feel that both are equally important. Most women (and men) do not see themsleves as ever becoming victims of such a terrible crime, however, it is more common than you think.One in four women will experience domestic violence in their lifetime. Violence does not mean that you are physically abused, it can mean verbal, emotional, and mental abuse as well. Our organization exists to empower victims of domestic violence by providing them with the essentials to get back on their feet.
