Homeless Prevention Council - Lower Cape Cod

Volunteer Opportunities

Board of Directors:

The Board of Directors meet at 9:30am on the third Wednesday of the month.  Meetings are held at the Homeless Prevention Council office at 14 Old Tote Road, Orleans.  Representation from each of the eight towns on the Lower Cape is desired.  If you are interested in serving on the Board, contact Board Chair Herb Montgomery at 508-240-1151.

Backpack to School Program:

Help us fill backpacks for students returning to public school in September. Teachers provide the list of required items and donors purchase or donate money for the items. Contact Maureen (508-255-9667 X 13) to volunteer for this great program which helps nearly 200 students annually.

Adopt A Family:

This holiday season program provides wish list items to nearly 250 qualifying families annually. Donors "adopt a family" and purchase the clothing and toy items requested. Volunteers organize the donations so parents can pick-up just before the holiday. Contact Maureen (508-255-9667 X 13) to volunteer to adopt a family or to help organize the donations.

Office Receptionist:

Office receptionists are the front line greeters at HPC. They greet clients and visitors who stop in personally or who call on the phone. Training is provided for the phone system. Contact Maggi (508-255-9667 X 11) to learn more and to volunteer.

Office Assistants:

Help prepare quarterly and other special event mailings. Call our office at 508-255-9667.
