WE CAN changes lives.

WE CAN --Women's Empowerment through Cape Area Networking-- furthers women's development through:
How WE CAN Helps
Women typically contact WE CAN in crisis, with multiple issues that often result from a difficult transition (e.g., illness, divorce, loss of spouse, bankruptcy). Women who come to us say that our practical services, combined with our warm, caring approach provide essential support at a time when they need it most. Repeatedly we hear, "WE CAN is a lifeline!"
Through a centralized intake process called "Options", and an interconnected set of highly effective programs, WE CAN offers support, empowerment and hope to Cape Cod women, their families and, ultimately, the community.
WE CAN services usually begin with a conversation with a WE CAN staff member to help each woman understand her options, prioritize next steps, and begin to stabilize her situation. This may involve signing the woman up for one or more of WE CAN services, or an appointment with our Program Director, a highly experienced licensed mental health counselor.
