Summer of HOPE

The best way to prevent homelessness is to help before the home is lost.

Nearly 400 Lower Cape families are still in their homes this summer because of help they received from Lower Cape Outreach Council last winter. We provided them with food, financial assistance, one-on-one mentoring, job counseling, and even help with paying for education and training. We helped them get back on their feet with a game plan for the future.

This is something we’ve been doing for Cape Codders for 37 years now.

That’s why we’ve been chosen to be one of the beneficiaries of Seaside Le Mans: The Race For The Cape Cod Community, the annual European-style Formula One outdoor race that takes place at Mashpee Commons on Saturday, September 9th.

This is great news for the Council. It gives us a major head start on funding basic services for our clients next winter and it allows us to further support new services like our jobs and mentoring programs, funding for education, and micro loans for local small businesses and self-employed workers.

We’ve made a commitment to the Seaside La Mans organization to match an estimated $50,000 of the revenues they will share with us as one of their 2017 beneficiaries.

You can help us raise that $50,000 in matching funds by using the DONATE button below.

And when you see our colorful canisters on the busy counters of hundreds of local businesses, toss in your spare change to help local workers and their families who struggle to make it through the off season on Cape Cod.

Thanks to the Seaside Le Mans organization, this is a unique opportunity to double the impact of your tax deductible contribution to Lower Cape Outreach Council.

Thanks to you, hundreds of local service workers, fishing families, young adults, kids, seniors and disabled people will find the help they need to become more productive, self-sustaining members of our Lower Cape community.
