Donate to A Work In Progress

As a 501(c)3 organization, A Work In Progress aims to help women who struggle with mental health and substance use disorders to become healthy, happy, and successful in life. From time to time, we accept donations from people who believe in our mission and wish to help the women in our home achieve their sobriety goals.

Below is a list of items that we need to keep our home operating and reduce the distractions that women face early in their recovery. If you are able, please consider a donation of something on this list. Your donation will go directly to our home and our family of recovering women.
