On October 24, 2009, I photographed a Halloween Party at a Women's Shelter in Brooklyn for Women In Need (WIN). PWP's Community Service Committee feels strongly photographing for an organization who has a positive philosophy on community! Stated on WIN's home page of their website: /http://www.women-in-need.org/
Women In Need, Inc., (WIN) provides housing, help and hope to New York City women and their families who are homeless and disadvantaged. Through comprehensive programs such as shelter, supportive permanent housing, job training, domestic violence services, alcohol and substance abuse treatment and childcare, WIN offers the tools and guidance which allow our families to return to their communities and live independently.
These kids won a dance contest and received a reward!
Limited Editions for Her had a three day event where every piece of clothing bought in their store was matched with a donation to WIN. They received over 1,000 pieces of pants, blouses and skirts. WIN staffer was nice enough to hold up a pair of pants for this photo taken in their in Manhattan Office.
On November 5th, I photographed an art therapy session at WIN's Women's Center in NYC. A group of students from the School of Visual Arts volunteered to do art therapy with WIN'S clients. Here's an example of what a great job they did creating masks!
