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.

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.

    "This man takes her in and, in exchange, she provides assistance with his new invention."

    At least with that, the two "n"s are separated somewhat.

    or

    "In exchange for taking her in, she provided assistance with his new invention."
