CHAMP Homes

CHAMP Homes seeks to provide shelter, build community, and change lives.  It is our sincere hope that individuals will find an oasis – where love, respect, and support—help each to move away from the difficulties that led to their homelessness and begin to reach toward their full potential.  Ultimately, our goal is to position our program participants to prevent future homelessness by modeling and teaching life skills and asking each to step up to their own personal “best”.

Community Development Partnership

The Community Development Partnership supports an array of programs that strengthen our Lower Cape community, providing greater opportunities for people to live, work and thrive.  We work to provide safe, stable affordable places to live by preserving existing homes and creating new affordable rentals. We strengthen local small businesses through micro-financing, education and individualized support; and we protect our environment by investing in renewable resources to sustain the future of this special place we call home.
