How Can We Help You? 

Financial Assistance

Living with a chronic health condition is expensive. We provide monthly financial assistance grants to low-income women to help offset the financial burden of illness.

Connection & Community

At HOW, you have many opportunities to connect with other women or with other agencies to support your healthcare journey.
