In addition to our case management services and collaborative programs, HPC maintains programs to improve the lives of the homeless and near homeless of Lower Cape Cod: (for our fundraisers and events, see our events section)
Staffed with three trained and experienced case managers, the Homeless Prevention Council provides extensive counseling and guidance to those at risk of becoming homeless. The client services include; advocacy and access to housing programs and funding, budgeting and negotiation for rent and mortgage payments. In addition, the 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.
Backpack-to-School program completes its 15th year.
Local children are supplied with backpacks filled with school required items. Generous donations of cash and product allow HPC to fulfill the local need.
Adopt-A-Family 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.
