March is National Women’s History Month, acknowledging the contributions women have made and to recognize and applaud the remarkable women of the past, present, and future.
One local organization that has been supporting women for more than 20 years is WE CAN (Women’s Empowerment through Cape Area Networking). Founded in 2001, the nonprofit (with locations in Harwich Port and Hyannis) works to empower Cape Cod women by providing unique services that inspire hope and bring increased stability, self-sufficiency and opportunity to their lives. WE CAN serves more than 2,400 women each year across Cape Cod with free and confidential legal services, employment and business support, financial empowerment, mentoring, and personal development programs.
Here are two upcoming programs:
