Juventude e Apoio a Jovens Adultos

Program Overview

Trabalhando em parceria com o Condado de Barnstable, a HPC fornece gestão de casos para jovens e jovens adultos com menos de 25 anos que vivem sozinhos e estão com dificuldades para encontrar ou manter habitação. Se você é um jovem adulto e precisa de apoio, ligue ou envie uma mensagem para Mary, nossa gerente de casos de jovens e jovens adultos, no número 774-801-9502.


O programa centra-se em jovens adultos em risco de ficarem sem abrigo – incluindo jovens que surfam no sofá, acampam ou vivem em carros.

For any questions or inquiries, please contact our Manager of Youth and Young Adult Services, Mary O’Reilly, at 774-801-9502 or
