WHAT WE DO

OUR PROGRAMS
1

BACKPACK TO SCHOOL

Local children are supplied with backpacks filled with school required items.  Generous donations of cash and product allow HPC to fulfill the local need.

2

ADOPT A FAMILY

This program pairs children who are most in need with people and businesses who want to give them a wonderful holiday.  Donors receive the first names of their child/children and their holiday wish list.  The donors purchase the requested gifts and deliver them to the HPC office where they are prepared for pick-up by the families who remain anonymous.

We are working toward a Lower Cape where everyone can thrive.

Staffed with three trained and experienced case managers, the Homeless Prevention Council provides professional counseling and guidance to those at risk of becoming homeless. Our client services include advocacy and access to housing programs and funding, and budgeting and negotiation for rent and mortgage payments. In addition, our case managers assist clients in assessing their ability to earn a living and, if appropriate, encourage them to pursue further job training and/or education.
