Woman to Woman was started in 2015 due to an increased homeless population of women in Jersey City. At Woman to Woman we provide homeless women with toiletries, cosmetics, clothing and other necessary items to assist them during their difficult time. The items are placed in a gently used or new mediuim to large size purse for them to keep. We wrap them with love because as women we know how important it is to feel valued. We then physical deliver these items to women living on the street, in transitional housing, shelters and churchs. Wherever they are we will go.
We would soon discover that hundreds of women wanted to help us - help others and our group membership increased to more than 1,500 members allowing us to not only service women in Jersey City but the surrounding cities such as, Bayonne, Hoboken, Elizabeth, Newark and Paterson. It was after our 1st distribution where we serviced 1,105 women it was decided that instead of distributing annually we would have quarterly distributions to replenish their supplies.
To date, we have helped more than 3,000 women and we only desire to help many more.
