About Us

Since 1991, HPC has provided 47,000 people with life-changing assistance, enabling our neighbors to live active and productive lives. 

Our Goal

The Homeless Prevention Council (HPC) empowers people by providing the tools, resources and guidance to promote stability through personalized solutions.  Our knowledgable and caring Case Managers work with clients to find practical solutions. Our goal is to help motivate clients to take step-by-step actions, take advantage of HPC programs that can help them succeed and, ultimately, stabilize their lives.

2021 Key Accomplishments
  • 2,714 total served; 1,037 Children; 1,114 adults and 947 families.​

  • Not one family served by HPC entered an emergency shelter.

  • HPC’s average cost per family was $618.

  • The average cost per family to enter a shelter is $63,000. Had these families become homeless and entered emergency shelter, the cost to the state of Massachusetts could have been as much as $59 million.

Our History

Since our founding in 1991, the Homeless Prevention Council (HPC) has been a critical resource for our neighbors in need. HPC has helped more than 47,000 residents from Harwich to Provincetown and in special programs in Yarmouth and Dennis.


HPC has been committed to supporting diversity on the Cape since we began providing services over 30 years ago to people from all walks of life, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, gender, ability or income. In our work, we have seen that anyone can land on hard times, and we consider it our job to help people find solutions that work for their unique life circumstances.
