Every Christmas, the community's generosity can be witnessed in the holiday gifts given to our most vulnerable clients. This holiday season, we have two options that will help our formerly homeless clients get settled into their new homes and prevent others from becoming homeless. Please support either of these efforts as part of your holiday giving to HAC.
Help Prevent Homelessness
The holidays can be difficult for many of our clients who are struggling with their bills and are facing the threat of losing their home or apartment. Your gift will ensure that our clients will be able to remain in their homes and stay safe during the cold winter months.
Every day, hundreds of clients call HAC seeking extra funds for their utilities or back rent. HAC's Project Prevention program has a pass-through fund that goes directly to cover client expenses so they can remain housed.
We conduct an extensive financial needs test and write a check to the vendor. You can drop off a monetary donation or Visa gift card to our office at 460 West Main Street in Hyannis. Make sure to note the donation is for HAC's Project Prevention.
You can also click the button below to make a donation to HAC so we can help those most in need at a time when they could use it the most. Your donation will go to support several of HAC's programs, including Project Prevention, Homeless Outreach, our family shelters, and more.
Donate to HAC's Welcome Home Gift Basket Program
In 2016, HAC served nearly 200 families through our shelter program. As these clients move out of shelter, they are in need of basic household items - towels, dishes, laundry baskets, kitchen utensils, diapers, and more - that will ease their transition into permanent housing.
Through our Welcome Home Gift Basket Program, you can donate new items to our most vulnerable clients. Providing these items saves the clients money so they can successfully stay housed. All donations should be new, store-bought, unopened, and unwrapped items.
