HOW’s mission is to educate, empower and support women living in the Lower and Outer Cape towns of Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown as they cope with chronic disease and life threatening illnesses.
Helping Our Women (HOW) was formed in Provincetown, Massachusetts in 1992 in response to the lack of services available to women with chronic, disabling and life threatening illness. In 1993, HOW opened a resource and referral center, acquired nonprofit status, and incorporated. HOW’s original focus was serving women with cancer, but in 1994 expanded to include all women diagnosed with chronic, life threatening and/or disabling illness. We now also provide referrals and resources to all community members. Long term Executive Director Irene Rabinowitz lead the organization for 18 years, along with its founders and members of the Board of Directors, to build a strong and supportive system of services to meet the needs of women with serious medical conditions.
