Team MONECO - Women In Need

One of our core beliefs here at MONECO Advisors is getting involved in our communities, and to highlight some of the great work our team and our local partners are doing to make contributions to the towns that we have been fortunate enough to live and work in.

This week we highlight our team's involvement in the Win Organization.  Founded in 1983, Win (at the time Women in Need) began as a shelter for four homeless women and their combined six children. Today, Win is the largest provider of shelter and supportive housing to homeless families in NYC. 

Win transforms the lives of New York City homeless families by providing holistic solutions of safe housing, critical services, and ground-breaking programs they need to succeed on their own– so these families can regain their independence and their children can look forward to a brighter future.

MONECO team members are both volunteers and fundraisers for the organization.  Learn more about this organization, as well as the host of others that the firm is involved in supporting in various ways. If you see a cause you would like to get involved with, do not hesitate to reach out to the the office to see how you can!
