Welcome to WAIM

WAIM started in 1984 in the basement of a local church with the original intention of redistributing clothing to our neighbors in need. Since then, we’ve grown to an organization that, along with clothing, provides furniture, appliances, linens, career clothing and emergency financial assistance to over 8,000 people each year from Windham and twelve surrounding towns. We also manage a thriving community garden at Lauter Park in Willimantic, offer Partners in Independence Adult Mentoring Program, and provide seasonal programs to help clients make ends meet.

We love to share our work with you in person. Call us at (860) 456-7270 if you would like to schedule a tour of our facility and learn about our programs first-hand.
