Recognizing the need to broaden access to their services for women on Cape Cod, WE CAN has opened a second location in Hyannis. The official opening takes place on Wednesday, March 29, from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at the new location, 127 Airport Drive in Hyannis.
“Having a location in the Mid Cape, in addition to our Harwich headquarters, will significantly increase opportunities for women to participate in our program offerings in-person, virtually, and through multilingual channels,” said Executive Director Lisa Guyon.
WE CAN has had a significant presence, primarily on the Lower Cape, for more than 20 years. Last year alone WE CAN helped over 2,200 women build pathways to stability and self-sufficiency. With a staff of 10 and over 250 volunteers, WE CAN offers expert support and services as women navigate challenging life transitions such as job loss, homelessness, divorce, health issues, personal loss, financial troubles and other crises.
At the Hyannis location, women will be offered workshops, one on one consultations focusing on legal issues, work and career support, personal development, small business support, and financial empowerment. Group offerings including the Pathmaker mentoring program and the GROW program for women entrepreneurs will also be offered. Select programs will be offered in Portuguese, with bilingual staff and volunteers available to assist non-English speaking participants.
Guyon expressed hopes that “the community will join us at the Open House so all can share in this exciting moment as we expand access to WE CAN’s services and further our goal of empowering the women and families in our community to thrive.”
