OUR

IMPACT

The cost to shelter a family per day in Massachusetts is $150, and average

length of stay is

409 days.*

In 2019,

HPC served 405 families. Only one entered a shelter.

This represents a $25 million savings for the State of MA.

2019 HIGHLIGHTS

  • We served 1,622 total clients!

  • Backpack to School and Adopt-a- Family programs served 457 children from  217 families.

  • Our first annual REACH Project helped clients develop self-sufficiency through practicing mindfulness, mastering goal-setting techniques, and fostering community.

  • We expanded our community engagement to locations throughout the Lower Cape.

  • We continued our strategic alliance with community partners Cape Cod Children's Place and Community Development Partnership.

  • In 2019, Rock to Stop Homelessness raised over $29,000 to help prevent homelessness on the Lower Cape. Donors, volunteers and clients danced up a storm of support!
