What is another way to say 'in exchange'?

I'm looking for a synonym for the phrase "in exchange". My goal is to not use the word "in", because it seems awkward with the current sentence structure that I'm using.

Update:

The sentence is "This man takes her in, in exchange for her assistance with his new invention."

The two "in"s beside each other seems awkward to me.

    You need to put in the sentence so that we could know if what we are about to suggest is correct. :) But I could suggest the word "replacing".
