Helping Our Women educates, empowers and supports women in the towns of Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown who are living with chronic, disabling or life threatening health conditions. We maintain an open-door policy to provide education and referrals to all community members.
We carry out our mission by providing direct services in three key areas: Transportation to healthcare appointments; Financial Assistance for women who qualify; and COMPASS programs promoting wellness and social engagement.
The core values of compassion, assistance and support that brought together the first group of volunteers remain the foundation on which the staff and leadership at Helping Our Women carries out our mission today.
Incorporated in 1993 as a 501(c)3, we expanded the scope of services from cancer patients to include all women diagnosed with chronic, life threatening and/or disabling illness in 1994. In 2018, we celebrated 25 years of service and paid off the mortgage on our office at 34 Conwell Street in Provincetown.
