WHC Rewards Incentive Program

You can help to encourage and inspire the residents of WHC to take control of their lives by recognizing their positive efforts and achievements. In the past year, we launched a beta-Rewards Incentive Program. It has been successful and moved from beta to a solid program offering for our residents. We are proud of residents who demonstrate exemplary performance and efforts that contribute to personal growth and success at WHC.
Residents are rewarded through a ticket system. Each month, residents with tickets can put them in a random monthly drawing. One to three winners are chosen each month depending on prize availability. Winners get to come to the prize closet to pick out their prize. Prizes are often donated by individuals in our WHC community. Prizes (new items) have included and/or could include: gift cards to department or grocery stores, household goods like lamps, electronics like a fitbit, art, gift certificate to a nail salon, etc. 
As a specialty program to recognize extraordinary behavior, the prizes are opportunities or things outside of basic needs. Our residents really like this program because they can get things that are often outside of their budgets, but make them feel both special and normal at the same time. If you’d like to donate something to the prize closet, please contact Alexandra Wykowski at AWykowski@WomensHousing.org 410-235-5782.
