Helping Our Women offers direct services to women diagnosed with chronic, life threatening, or disabling conditions. All of our services are free and confidential.
Our Financial Assistance provides monthly assistance to low-income clients in the form of payments made directly to a payee on behalf of the client.
The Transportation Program provides transportation to medical appointments, whether on the lower Cape, mid-Cape or Boston.
Our Chronic Illness Support Group is held weekly at St. Mary of the Harbor Episcopal Church in Provincetown, facilitated by Doreen Devlin, RN, LMHC. We also offer a Support Group for Women with Cancer, facilitated by Cindy Rosenbaum, LICSW. Both groups are open to women Cape-wide.
We also provide periodic workshops for our clients based on interest expressed by the women themselves. In 2009, we began to work with Rebecca Burrill, EdD, who facilitates a multi-session all abilities movement workshop specifically for our clients.
All of our programs are advocacy based and responsive to the needs of those we serve. We assist with applications for benefits such as SNAP, Social Security, and housing programs. We are an official site to assist with Fuel Assistance applications and we provide referrals to other beneficial programs.
