She founded the Rena Rowan Foundation for the Homeless in 1995, recognizing the needs of Philadelphia's most vulnerable citizens - particularly homeless women with children. The Foundation has supported such projects as Rowan House, with People's Emergency Center, and Rowan Homes, with Project H.O.M.E. These facilities, which care for homeless families, children, and teens in West and North Philadelphia, respectively, were born out of their benefactor's keen memories of and experiences in her early life.
This philanthropist helped, moreover, to raise funds from other donors for these projects, and for the Rena Rowan Breast Center at the Abramson Cancer Center of the University of Pennsylvania, also a beneficiary of her largess. This generosity, too, came as a response to a difficult time in Rena's life, when she herself was treated for breast cancer.
